Susquehanna Rlumnus 



VOLUME 48, NUMBER 4 



FALL 1979 



Report of the President 1978-79 . . . True to Our Traditions: 

RESPONDING TO THE CHALLENGE OF OUR TIMES 




The completion of our 1 2 1st academic year provided Susquehanna with ever-welcome 
reasons to be cautiously optimistic about the future. At a time of inflation, retrenchment, and 
the beginning of a decade of decline in high school enrollments, Susquehanna's vital signs 
remain good. With this, my second report as President of the University, I wish to tell you of 
our achievements and outline some of the 
next tasks which we must accomplish. 

To be sure, as with other institutions of 
higher education, Susquehanna is not with- 
out its problems. Double-digit inflation has 
cut into the buying power of our budget. 
While our enrollment stands at a record high 
and may be even higher for next year, we too 
must deal with the projected 25 percent 
decline in college students by 1990. At the 
time of this writing, the gap in tuition costs 
between independent and public higher 
education grows, while the recent American 
infatuation with specific vocational training 
at the expense of the liberal arts shows little 
sign of abating. Perhaps fundamental to all 
of these problems is a current confusion and 
lack of direction for all of American educa- 
tion. 

In terms of leadership on the campus, 
we continue to move through a period of 

transition. The eighteen-year tenure of President Weber was one of substantial achievement 
in growth, program development, and the construction of an impressive physical plant. While 
the University awaited the arrival of Joel L. Cunningham as Vice President for Academic Af- 
fairs, Acting Vice President James B. Steffy served admirably during 1978-79 as he began to 
deal with the academic challenges ahead. And challenges there are. 

Foremost of these is the demand for quality and fiscal stability during a period of ram- 
pant inflation. Books cost twice what they did only a few years back, and fuel oil has more 
than doubled in the last ten months. Inflation also strikes home with each American family, 
as is indicated by the ever-growing requests for student aid. We continue to attract 
scholarship and loan monies; this places the privilege of a Susquehanna education within the 
reach of all qualified students who apply. Problems pressed upon us by external force are 
monumental, and sometimes we feel like the monarch butterfly making its way among a host 
of skyscrapers. 

The most fundamental challenge, however, deals not primarily with personnel and 
finances, but with the necessity that we answer the question, "What can and should Sus- 
quehanna be?" I believe that the answer is to be found in our history, our present condition, 
and our vision of the future. 

Susquehanna's history is the story of an institution having responded faithfully to the 
needs of more than six generations of young men and women. From its founding in 1858, it 
refused to be boundby the conventional wisdom of its day. At a time when the vast majority 
of college students were male and came from better-than-average circumstances, Benjamin 



SU President Jonathan C. Messerli 



Kurtz and his band of practical visionaries believed that Susquehanna would be a place for 
the sons and daughters of farmers, teachers, blacksmiths, laborers, and merchants. Equally 
daring for the time was their notion that training in the liberal arts was not to be merely a 
social veneer, but the sound basis for personal development and a productive career. 

The answer to the question is also found in the kind of school Susquehanna has become 
and the human resources currently found in the campus community. Susquehanna is a 
teaching institution. Its faculty teach from the viewpoint that an education is worth no more 
than however much is expected of the professor and the student. An education which de- 
mands little of teacher and learner is of little worth. The quality of many institutions is 
assumed just because of the high performance of their applicants on aptitude tests in high 
school. However, we believe that our merit as educators is based upon how well we teach and 
how well we enable our students to grow beyond their aptitudes. We give much of ourselves 
and we expect much in return in the form of intellectual, social, and moral growth within our 
students. Although some presume that Scholastic Aptitude Test scores set a ceiling on what 
the high school graduate is likely to learn in college, Susquehanna demonstrates that effort 
and motivation increasingly belie that debilitating form of academic predestination. 

The answer is also to be found in our vision of the future. Thereare a number of reasons 
why American higher education fell from grace during the Seventies. The public saw in its 
schools some of the ills so visible in other sectors of our culture. Colleges and universities 
became larger without becoming better. While there were more faculty, students, and 
courses, there seemed to be less literacy. Once graduates, having survived a demanding rite of 
passage, left campuses with firm values and an informed commitment. In recent times they 
give greater evidence of a rootless abstention from our culture, apparently on the way to 
becoming nothing more than permanent critics and convinced cynics, unwilling to work 
within the mainstream of our society. 

At Susquehanna, our vision for the Eighties can brook no compromises with the shod- 
diness of workmanship and standards which trouble many sectors of our society. The de- 
mands of our time require that we hold ourselves and our clients, the students, to the highest 
possible achievements. At a time of widespread alienation, we will work to make our campus 
a true community of individuals who care for one another, where all will be nurtured and sup- 
ported. At a time of excessive emphasis on narrow career preparation which may quickly 
become obsolete, we will make a compelling case for the liberal arts as the best basis for a 
rewarding life and entry into the world of work. 

Our future distinction and excellence will not be built primarily on the basis of particular 
programs or the SAT average of our freshman class, but by creating an educational setting 
and experience where each student will develop to the fullest of his or her capacities — 
spiritually, intellectually, and socially. Such will be the hallmark of the Susquehanna ex- 
perience. 

That we have such a claim on the future and a legitimate hedge against the pessimism so 
endemic in higher education can be seen in some of our more recent achievements. 

Susquehanna is a family. The quality of the total student experience has endeared the 
University to Susquehannans past and present. We have preserved this real and identifiable 
quality by a tradition of concern. Doing so is walking a fine line between individual freedom 
which fosters personal maturation, and community citizenship built upon responsibility to 
others. I am most encouraged by our accomplishments to date and our willingness to work on

To Tab Or Not To Tab 

Several months ago at one of our sister institutions, the alumni publication's magazine 
format was abandoned in favor of a tabloid newspaper. The editor wrote that the magazine 
had fallen victim— like a lot of other things these days — to inflation. 

That may be happening to us too, although we have not yet made a final decision 
regarding the future format of Susquehanna Alumnus, This issue is experimental. It is true 
that changing can result in saving some money, but thedifficulty is in assessing whether those 
savings are worth the loss of character, "prestige," image — whether the tabloid format can 
adequately serve our purpose and will be as acceptable to our constituents. 

A number of colleges and universities have made the switch during the past decade or so; 
some are happy with the change and others have hastened to switch back, convinced that the 
less-formal tabloid hurls their program. We conducted a survey (called ESP, for Evaluate 
Susquehanna Periodicals) eight years ago and our readers were quite definite in expressing 
their preference for the magazine format: "impact of class presentation counts very much . . . 
alumni publication is the front door of the University to those who are no longer within it. As 
such, it must continue to project a quality image. A newspaper format would lessen the 
current standard. . . Don't change — this kind of mag is what brings the money. Change, and 
you'll lose a lot of it! . . . You are on the right track — no tabloid for me." 

That was eight years ago. Our basic purposes are still the same — to serve as a link be- 
tween alumni and their Alma Mater and between alumni and other alumni, to help maintain 
loyalties and a high regard for Susquehanna by informing readers about events and develop- 
ments on campus as well as about what alumni are doing. No doubt many folks still feel the 
same way about format as they did eight years ago, but the pressures for change are greater 
now. So we're sending up this trial balloon, and we'll be watching and listening to find out 
what you think. 

— G.T. 



The Susquehanna Alumnus 



Responding to the Challenge „.,*,,«,/».. w , 

the unresolved problems in this area. Our success will provide a key element in creating the 
distinctiveness upon which Susquehanna bases its hopes for the future. 

We are a student-oriented institution, and probably there is no better indication of our 
vitality than in the interests, attitudes, and accomplishments of our student body. Last year 
the Volunteer Program involved 800 students who contributed over 6000 hours of volunteer 
work in the community — ranging from working in a halfway house and a senior-citizen pro- 
ject to door-to-door canvassing for the United Way. This type of activity is an important part 
of the undergraduate experience, an extra dimension which is encouraged by the University. 
Few other institutions can claim such an extensive program. It also fits in well with our desire 
to have students experience an internship or practicum related to their major field of study. 

Yet, any college administrator will be quick to state that today's young men and women 
defy any simple stereotype. There is evidence that just as the transition brought about by a 
new administration is an adjustment for faculty and staff, so, too, it is an adjustment for the 
student body. Being able to adjust to change can be an important and positive part of an un- 
dergraduate education, for it, too, represents what our graduates may expect in a modern and 
complex world. It is my desire to include all elements of the campus in the decision-making of 
this University. 

Measured against almost any of the national standards, the Susquehanna graduate fares 
well. He or she is prepared for graduate or professional school, is competitive in the job 
market, and has acquired beliefs, skills, competencies which bode well for a successful and 
highly satisfying future. Our graduates are responsive, responsible, and able to cope in a 
changing world. This is a true and convincing testimony for the liberal arts experience at a 
church-related college. 

As you review the remainder of this report, I think you will be impressed by the involve- 
ment and dedication of many people — faculty, administrators, board members, the Lutheran 
Church, alumni, and friends — all of whom have given of their time and/or resources to help 
make Susquehanna an exceptional school. We take pride in issuing this Report and extend a 
sincere "thank you" to all of you who have had a hand in our success.

ADMISSI0NS 



• The University opened this September 
with an enrollment of 1,457 full-time stu- 
dents, the largest in history. 

• Among the entering class of 426 
freshmen, 36 percent enrolled in the Business 
Program, 7 percent in Music, and 57 percent 
Liberal Arts. 

• The average SAT scores for the class of 
1983 were: Verbal 459, Math 510. This 
represents a slight improvement over last 
year and runs counter to the national trend. 

• Seventy percent of the incoming class 
graduated in the upper two-fifths of their 
secondary school class. 

• Applications for admission remain con- 
stant at about 1,400. 

• The Admissions staff, with student, 
faculty, and administrative assistance. 



visited over 350 secondary schools during the 
year and conducted 875 interviews on 
campus. 

• An Alumni Admissions Program was in- 
itiated and over 200 S.U. alumni were 
recruited to assist the Admissions Office in 
contacting students in their home areas. Two 
on-campus seminars were conducted for 
Alumni Admissions Representatives. 

• Several trends in admissions were 
noticeable this past year. First, there con- 
tinues to be a growing interest in the Business 
program and, second, a very high proportion 
of applicants who visit campus eventually 
enroll at the University. 

• A fifth full-time member of the admis- 
sions staff has been added, faculty are more 
actively engaged in the process and alumni 
are called on with increasing frequency to 
assist in recruiting. Admissions has become 
an activity which involves everyone asso- 
ciated with the University.

FALL 1979 SUSQUEHANNA ALUMNUS Pag* 3 



STUDENT LIFE 

• The luxury of full enrollment caused 
some strain on housing this fall. One hun- 
dred students started the year in triples — 
three students living in rooms designed for 
two. 

• Two facilities — Hassinger and Seibert — 
which by most standards are barely adequate 
as residence halls, are in need of renovation. 

• During the past year, a complete study of 
housing began, including plans to upgrade 
the University Avenue houses. Thirty new 
spaces were added this past summer, and this 
matter will have top priority as the Univer- 
sity moves into the 1 25th Anniversary Cam- 
paign. 

• Yet, compared to most colleges, Sus- 
quehanna's physical plant is more than ade- 
quate and,. in many respects, superior. 

• Last year the Volunteer Services Pro- 
gram involved 800 students who contributed 
over 8,000 hours of volunteer work to over 
twenty local agencies. 

• An alternative school for high school stu- 
dents classified as delinquents and manned 
by S.U. students was conducted on campus. 

• Eleven residence hall groups, mostly the 
residents of the University Avenue houses, 
developed "theme houses" to provide volun- 
teer services to agencies in the community. 
Interests range from working with the Girl 
Scout troops in Selinsgrove and for a local 
day care center to tutoring high school stu- 
dents and assisting six retarded men living in 
a Group Home in Selinsgrove. 

• Over 150 Susquehanna students served 
internships during the past year, many 
related to their major fields of study. 

• The Career Development and Placement 
Office achieved a notable record by assisting 
92 percent of the Business students, 97 per- 
cent of the music graduates and 95 percent of 
the liberal arts majors in the Class of 1978 
find jobs within three months following 
graduation. 

• A Peer Counseling Program was in- 
itiated in the residence halls with the 
assistance of a grant from the Lutheran 
Church in America. 

• Drug and Alcohol Education Programs 
were formulated by the Student Personnel 
staff and are well attended by students. 



FINANCIAL AID 

• During 1978-79 a record 817 Sus- 
quehanna students or 60 percent of the stu- 
dent body received a total of $2,367,384 in 
financial aid from all sources. Of this 
amount, students were awarded $1,930,734 
from those student financial aid programs 
traditionally administered by the University. 

• A total of 871 individuals submitted the 
Financial Aid Form (FAF) of the College 
Scholarship Service. Twenty-four percent of 
these students were from families whose 
parental income totaled less than $15,000. 

• An expenditure of $294,667 in Sus- 
quehanna University Grants (funds from the 
operating budget) presents evidence of the 
University's commitment to funding student 
assistance at new levels. This item accounted 
for 15 percent of S.U. administered aid dur- 
ing 1978- 79 as opposed toonly l4percentfor 
the previous year. 

• Three major points should be made: 1. 
These figures indicate the importance of 
financial aid to the typical Susquehanna stu- 
dent who generally comes from a middle in- 
come background; 2. This indicates the im- 
portant role of the Financial Aid Office in 
counseling and packaging aid for students 
and their families; 3. Gifts to the University 
are instrumental in making certain that a 
Susquehanna education remains within 
reach of all qualified students. 



ACADEMIC 
PROGRAM 



• In a move to accommodate institutional 
change and redirection, a new' position in 
Faculty and Curriculum Development was 
established under the Vice President for 
Academic Affairs. 

• Dr. Joel L. Cunningham, formerly Dean 
of Continuing Education at the University of 
Tennessee at Chattanooga, was named Vice 
President for Academic Affairs and Dean. 

• Formal evaluations were conducted by 
the University in the departments of 
Biology, Geology, Sociology, Art, and 
Education. Reports have been studied by 
faculty and staff for possible program ad- 
justments. 

• Curricular revisions were approved for 
major programs in Business Administration, 
Geology, Sociology, and Political Science. 

• A newly revised Academic Core program 
applicable to all students was implemented. 
The revision includes an additional course in 
writing and has resulted in an increase in the 
foreign language enrollments. 

• The faculty approved the establishment 
of academic minors, which has resulted in 
proposals from a number of departments to 
implement specific minor programs. 

• A study of instructional space utilization 
on campus resulted in a decision to locate the 
Psychology Department's animal laboratory 
facilities in the Fisher Science Hall. This 
work will be completed during the present 
year, costs permitting, and will result in a 
substantially improved facility for teaching 
and research. 

• The appointment of James B, Steffy as 
Dean of Continuing Education on a half- 
time basis will allow Susquehanna to expand 

TRENDS IN SELECTION OF MAJORS

Chairman Erie I. Shobert II '35. at right, welcome two new members of the administrative staff: 
Dr. Joel L. Cunningham, vice president for academic affairs and dean of the faculty who was 
officially installed at the event, and the Rev. Dr. Paul L. Reaser. interim chaplain to the University. 



its offerings for adult learners in the region. 

• An Early College Program, designed to 
assist freshmen with marginal academic 
skills, was implemented during the summer. 
Twenty students enrolled for concentrated 
work in writing, reading, mathematics, and 
overall study skills. 

• In cooperation with the Geisinger 
Medical Center in Danville, the University 
has established a Bachelor of Science degree 
in Anesthesia for nurses. Students will take 
Core and elective courses at Susquehanna 
and complete other classroom and clinical 
work at Geisinger. 




• Significant grants were received during 
the year which served to support the 
academic program. Among them were; $40,- 
000 to Dr. Thomas F. McGrath of the 
Chemistry Department from the Environ- 
mental Protection Agency for summer 
research in pesticide analysis; $35,000 to Dr. 
Charles J. Igoe of the Education Department 
from the Appalachian Regional Commis- 
sion for work with college interns in counsel- 
ing high school students; $35,000 to Dr. 
William A. Rock from the J.H. Pew 
Freedom Trust for the University's Business 
and Society Program; A continuation grant 
of $40,000 from the National Endowment 
for the Humanities for Dr. Richard Kamber 
of Philosophy and Ronald L. Dotterer of 
English for the University's Film Institute; 
$36,000 from HEW to Professor Larry 
Augustine of the Communications Depart- 
ment for the University's radio station. 

• The Board of Directors approved these 
promotions: Dr. Wallace J. Growney to 
Professor of Mathematical Sciences; Dr. 
Gerald R. Gordon to Professor of History; 
Dr. John H. Longaker to Professor of 
History; Boyd Gibson to Associate Pro- 
fessor of Religion; Cyril M. Stretansky to 
Associate Professor of Music: Connie N. 
Delbaugh to Assistant Professor of Physical 
Education; and William J. Seaton to Assis- 
tant Professor of Sociology. 

• While institutions welcome staff changes 
from time to time, the University was sad- 
dened this year by the loss of several impor- 
tant staff members. The death of Dr. Philip 
C. Bossart, professor of psychology, on 
Commencement Day is a loss deeply felt by 
the Susquehanna family. The passing of 
Joyce K. Gilbert, assistant registrar, in the 
spring of the year also resulted in a signifi- 
cant loss for this University. Additionally, 
the retirement of Dr. Robert M Bastress of 
the Education Department culminated a 
long career of exceptional service to both this 
University and public education. Dr. 
Bastress has been accorded the status of 
professor emeritus. 

• Sabbatical leaves for 1979-80 have been 
granted to: Dr. Bruce D. Presser in Biology 
for post-doctoral study at Johns Hopkins 
University; Dr. Wallace J. Growney in 
Mathematical Sciences for post-doctoral 
study at Harvard University; J. Thomas 
Walker of Sociology for doctoral study at 
St. Louis University; Dr. Gerald R. Gordon 
in History for post-doctoral study at Penn 
State; Dr. Otto Reimherr in Philosophy and 
Religion for research in Washington, D.C. 
and New York City. 



PaflO 4 SUSQUEHANNA ALUMNUS FALL 1979 




• The University's Film Institute, funded 
by a grant from the National Endowment for 
the Humanities, expanded its service to stu- 
dents and to other regional colleges and has 
been recognized nationally as an innovative 
program that integrates the use of the film 
into the instructional program. 

• The Institute of Business and Society, 
funded by a grant of $100,000 from the Pew 
Freedom Trust, is receiving wide acclaim for 
integrating classroom work and seminars on 
the American business system into the 
liberal arts curriculum. 

• The Oxford Program of summer study in 
England continues to be highly successful. It 
served over thirty students in 1979 and was 
headed by Dr. Robert L. Bradford, professor 
of Political Science. 

• The University Symphonic Band and 
Concert Choir completed a fifteen-day 
Christmas tour of Europe that was high- 
lighted by a performance in Notre Dame 
Cathedral in Paris. 

• A grant approved by the Lutheran 
Church in America provided funds for the 
Department of Education to introduce a 
Teaching Clinic Program which utilized ad- 
junct public school personnel to assist with 
the teacher training program. This concept 
has become a model for other liberal arts 
colleges. 

• Dr. Wilhelm Reuning, former dean of 
the University, has been appointed Director 
of International Education at the University 
to coordinate foreign study programs and to 
create study opportunities abroad for Sus- 
quehanna students. 

• During 1978-79 the Blough Learning 
Center added 6,511 volumes, 1,452 micro- 
forms and 249 recordings to its holdings. 
There are now 135,853 items in the Univer- 
sity's Learning Center. 

• More than twenty awards were made to 
members of the faculty for professional 
growth during 1978-79 from funds totaling 
over $17,000 provided for such purposes by 
the University. In addition, five members of 
the factllt) received grants amounting to 
over $5.(X)0 for summer research projects. 



DEVELOPMENT 
AND FINANCE 



• Gifts and grants to the University for the 
year ending June 30, 1979 amounted to 
$889,349, and about 30 percent of Sus- 
quehanna's alumni made contributions. The 
target is 40 percent participation by 1983. 

• The annual giving program, the Sus- 
quehanna University Fund, exceeded itsgoal 
of $280,000 and established a record $283,- 
000 in gifts. The number of donors to SUF 
decreased, however, by 91 to 2,623. The goal 
for 1979-80 is 3,000 gifts and $300,000. 

• The University Associates Program is 
the special gift phase of the annual fund. 
During the year just ended, 468 gifts totalling 
$169,672 were received from donors giving 
$125 or more. This provides an important 
base for annual giving. 

• A major factor in a successful fundrais- 
ing program involves planned giving. The 
University has increased the flow of infor- 
mation to alumni and friends i

themselves through the use of testamentary 
and living-trust gifts. Susquehanna has been 
informed of over one hundred alumni and 
friends who have included the University in 
their wills, and there are indications from

many others that this is their intention. 

• During 1 978-79 the University was in- 
formed of the deaths of two valued friends of 
Susquehanna who have left in excess of 
$400,000 to insure the institution's future. 

• During the past year two prominent 
buildings were named for individuals who 
have played a vital role in the University's 
development. The Fisher Science Hall, was 
named for a long-time science teacher. Dr. 
George Fisher, by his family: and the Houts 
Gymnasium, was named in honor of 
Orlando W. Houts, a member of the Board 
of Directors for almost twenty years. 

• The University ended the year just com- 
pleted with operating income exceeding ex- 
penses by $108,000. 

• The operating results were influenced by 
full enrollment and the refinement of 
budgeting procedures which more closely 
state and monitor income and expenses. 



• Susquehanna continues to be highly 
dependent on two sources of income — 
tuition (59 percent) and gifts (12 percent). 
The University's modest endowment of only 
$2 million continues to limit flexibility in 
budgeting and in program expansion. 

• An emphasis on bequests coupled with 
endowment as a priority in the forthcoming 
125th Anniversary Campaign will improve 
the endowment position relative to other 
colleges. 

• Costs increased by over 10 percent dur- 
ing the past academic year, yet Federal 
Wage and Price Guidelines restricted the in- 
crease in tuition and fees to just under 9 per- 
cent. 

• Tuition for 1979-80 is $3,700 and the full 
cost of attending Susquehanna is now $5,- 
400. Cost-wise, this ranks the University 
about in the middle of a group of 18 com- 
peting colleges in Pennsylvania.

THAT'S HOW IT WAS 

by EMMETT FREDERICK 

The fires of the "flaming '20s" did not flare exceedingly bright on Sus- 
quehanna's campus or in Selinsgrove. But they did burn. 

Dr. Charles Thomas Aikens was president of Susquehanna when the decade 
dawned. "Prexy" Aikens was well-liked by students, faculty, and townspeople. An 
easy-going, friendly man, he in some ways resembled the stereotyped absentminded 
professor, and therein lie several anecdotes of his tenure. 

President Aikens and his wife Carrie lived in the brownstone and frame dwelling 
on the southwest corner where Broad Street dead-ends at Walnut Street, now Uni- 
versity Avenue. The structure today houses some Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity 
members. 

Prexy was the proud possessor of a Packard touring car — a stubby machine with 
a running board that stood high off the road. Driving that car was not one of his 
greater talents. Most times he parked it beneath the porte-cochere at the side door 
of his home leading to his study, disdaining to drive it into the barn that doubled as 
his garage. 

Parking the Packard there provided easy access to free transportation for those 
adventuresome male students who had none. Waiting until the good president and 
his lady had retired early in the night, as was their wont, the boys would push the un- 
locked car out the driveway, down Walnut Street toward town, up the incline that 
then led to the railroad tracks, and with some hearty shoving, down the other side 
with sufficient momentum to get the motor chugging. Then they'd take off on their 
night's foray. They undoubtedly put more miles on the car than Prexy did. 

Dr. Aikens never got wise to the caper. The only thing that puzzled him was why, 
in driving to and from campus, he kept running out of gas when he'd had the tank 
filled only a day or two before. 

The Aikens family did much to establish a good relationship between the Univer- 
sity and the borough. After Dr. Aikens's death, Mrs. Aikens was the intended vic- 
tim of a bizaare but thwarted extortion plot. Dr. Aikens's son Claude became a suc- 
cessful newspaper publisher and businessman in State College. He served on the 
University's board of directors and, on his death, his son Thomas succeeded him.

Russ Stevenson Runs For Money 



by SUSAN STETZ '80 

Russ Stevenson 'SO holds the Susquehanna 
cross country course record (23:29 for 4.9 miles), 
but there is a different kind of mark he wants to es- 
tablish with his running-lhis year. Having raised 
nearly $3000 for the Selinsgrove United Way cam- 
paign during the past three years, Russ wants to 
bring that total to $4000. 

His contributions so far were honored this fall 
when Dr. Karl Rohrbach, Selinsgrove United 
Way president, presented him with an engraved 
silver bowl at halftime or a local high school foot- 
ball game. He collected $750 as a freshman, $800 
as a sophomore, and $1200 last year. 

Stevenson conceived the idea of running to 
raise money for charity after reading a campus 
poster which described the annual Selinsgrove 
United Way drive. "1 had participated in CROP 
walks and other fund-raising drives in high 
school,*' said Stevenson, "and 1 decided to con- 
tinue the practice in college, I chose the United 
Way because it supports many different organiza- 
tions, and I know they handle the money well. 
Also, the SU administration is active «uh this 
charity," he says. 

Each year Russ has participated in oneor two 
26-mile marathons. Three weeks prior to the race, 
he personally visits dorms and local residents and 
explains his part in the United Way campaign. 
Russ solicits pledges, people promise to donate a 
certain amount of money for each mile Russ runs. 
Following the race, Russ returns to each residence 
to collect the money pledged 

Russ has received much support from the SU 
faculty and administration as well as area 
merchants. Ray Benner of Selinsgrove Motors has 
provided Russ with a car to travel to the Boston 
Marathon for the past two years. He has also com- 
peted in the Harrisburg and Jersey Shore 



marathons lo the benefit of the United Way 

To train for these races, Russ averages I 
miles of running a day. "Most of the maralhor 
take place during either cross-country or trac 
seasons, so I'm better able to discipline myself I 
train for them," he says. 

Because Russ was born in the Boston jre. 
the Boston Marathon is his favorite race "Ther 
are usually many family and friends there to cheer I 
me on," said Russ. "Last year we even celebrated , 
my 21st birthday on the day of the marathon 

Russ comes from a famil> which shares his 
passion for running. Every member of his fa mil) is 
athletic and all three or his brothers ran Boston 
before Russ. He and his brothers have run the 
marathon together on various occasions. "Boston 
is sort of a family tradition," Russ says. 

Russ graduated from Ramapo High Schoa 
in New Jersey. His parents. Mr. and Mrs W,lliam 
Stevenson, now reside in Midlothian. Va RussM 
marketing major who plans a career in business. 
Next to running, the activities he enjoys most .ire 
sailing and traveling. 

Since his freshman year. Russ has been if | 
number-one runner on the Crusader cross cou 
team The SU harriers have not suffered j losing ] 
season during his career. He also competes in IDE 
distance events for the Orange and Maroon trawl 
squad, and holds the school mark in the three-mftl 
run at 14:50. 

To reach his goal of $4000 for charity. Ru» 
needs to raise $1250 this year. Instead of p»| 
ticipating in a marathon, he may try a mAI 
unique method of raising funds. States Russ, "IP[ 
like lo organize a ten-man team and stage a S* 
hour marathon. The world record is 297 miles, a* I 
perhaps we could break it." If not. Russ and tf ] 
Selinsgrove United Way will still be winners

Combining athletics with diplomacy, the Crusader men's hoop team opened the 1979-80 winter 
sports season at Susquehanna by hosting a touring team from the Republic of China (Taiwan). In a con- 
test which may have done more for international harmony and understanding than for the game of 
basketball, the Orange and Maroon scored an easy 83-66 triumph over the Nationalist Chinese. 

The affair was conducted with appropriate pomp and protocol before some 1200 fans, including 
many from off campus. The Marching Brass and Percussion played the national anthems of both coun- 
tries, players from the two teams exchanged gifts and mementos; and SU First Lady Vi Messerli tossed 
up the first ball. 

The visitors represented the Yue Loong Motor Company, the largest automobile manufacturer in 
Taiwan A league champion in its home country, the motor company team has played throughout the Far 
East and in Africa and South America. In its first tour of the United States, Yue Loong was winless in 13 
games against competition which included Niagara, Vermont, Dartmouth, Army. California-Fullerton, 
and Nevada-Reno. 

The losses did not seem to dampen the spirits of the travelers, however. Speaking little English, 
members of the Yue Loong entourage smiled broadly and handed out team pins and brochures to 
everyone within reach . They found the U ,S. to be "a nice place" with kind people and "much friendship." 
slid "i iic Loong team leader Yang Ming-Fang. "Everybody on our team walks high." he said. The Yue 
Loong brochure notes that "the basketball team is made up of factory personnel whose objective is to 
create healthful competition as well as community spirit. This is in keeping with our government policy 
to promote physical education." Of its "goodwill" tour of America, Yue Loong says "in this way we get 
to know our friends." 

With their victory, the Crusaders seemed to impress everyone in attendance except Coach Don Har- 
num. "We were fiat at times," said Harnum, who didn't feel that the Chinese were much competition. 
While showing unswerving patience with their controlled offense and hitting 61 percent of their field goal 
attempts, the Yue Loong team lacked the ball-handling, rebounding, and defensive skills of American 
collegians. The Crusaders were paced by 5-11 guard Rod Brooks '8 1 (Philadelphia) with 25 points and 6- 
4 forward Kevin Doty '82 (Springfield, N.J.) with 18 points and 11 rebounds. 

This pair was expected to be effective for SU throughout the season. Brooks led the team last year 
with .in average of IS points per game. Doty, who averaged 10 points and 6 rebounds as a freshman, is 
Harnum's tallest starter at this point. Brooks, with a two-year total of 686 points, is a tri-captain along 
with 6-3 forwards Larry Weil '81 (Coloma. N.J.) and Mark Sacco '81 (Chatham. N.J.) who join Doty in 
the fronlcourt. 

The other guard would be either 5-9 Ray Nardo '8 1 (Berkeley Heights. N.J.) or 5-8 Robb Larson '8 1 
(Harrisburg. Pa .). The seventh returning lellerman from last season's 10-14 team is 6-4 forward Ed 
Rogovich '81 (Crcsskill, NY.). Juniors dominate a varsity roster which lists no seniors. 

The Crusaders can run and shoot but could experience rebounding and defensive problems because 
of their small size. Last winter's top rebounder. 6-7 Bob Sisco. suffered an off-season injury and did not 
return to the University this year. However. Coach Harnum has been pleasantly surprised by the im- 
provement of 6-7 forward Eric Johnson '82 (Brookfield, Wis.), If he becomes a factor under the boards, a 
winning season is a possibility for the SU quintet. 

Tw> bad knees, one belonging to I 18-lb. Todd Burns 'SI ISelinsgrove) and the other to 134-lb. Billy 
Telesco '82 | Clark. \ J I. are the only dark clouds on the horizon for the Orange and Maroon wrestlers 
With a combined dual meet record of 1 7-8-1 . this lightweight duo played key roles last winter as the Sus- 
quehanna grapplers went 8-5 for their first winning season in six years Bui both were on the injured list as 
the new campaign began. If they are ready to compete in January as hoped, the Crusaders should be even 
stronger than last year. 

Coach Charlie k una lost only one lellerman. winless heavyweight Russ Flickinger 79, and had 1 1 
lettermen returning. With the addition of some promising freshmen. Susquehanna is expected to have 
strong entrants in every weight class. 

Other lopSU wrestlers are ISO-lb Rick Evans '81 ( Mechanicsburg. Pa. I. who had the squad's best 
individual dual mark last winter at 11-2; 167-lb.Joel Tokarz SOIOssining. N.Y.). 9-2 last vear; 190-lb 
Bert Szostak 81 iColoma. \ J i. 10-3. and 142-lb Bill Brysun 81 iEaslon. Pa t. 9-3 

Bry.son missed last years Middle Atlantic Conference Championships with an injured wrist, but 
Tokar-.. Evans. Telesco. and Szostak all placed well as Si finished ninth among 20 teams. The 
Crusaders will have a home mat advantage when they try to improve upon that performance this year 
Susquehanna will host the MAC tournament in the Houls Gym on Feb 22 and 23. 

Prospects were uncertain for the Crusader women's basketball team which has its third coach in as 
many years. Rose Ann Neff left for Lock Haven State, and Janet Conn, who filled in last year while Neff 
was on sabbatical leave, is no longer available. The post was filled by Joyce Nolen of Sunbury, a former 
coach at Lincoln Universit) 



She took over a team that suffered a disappointing 4-8 mark last winter and has lost its top two 
players. Janeen Kruse '79 and Sherry Rohm '79. On the positive side: the squad is larger than in recent 
years with 13 players; there is good height among the freshmen; two dedicated and skilled players re- 
turned in 5-5 guard Becky Edmunds '8 1 (Forty Fort, Pa.) and 5-7 forward Sue Grausam '8 1 ( Westfield, 

N.J.). 

Poised to make a big splash in its first official intercollegiate campaign was the coed Susquehanna 
i wimming team, which had operated as a club under the auspices of the Student Government Association 
for the past two years. On the basis of the success theSU club enjoyed against varsity squads, one could 
expect an auspicious debut for the new Crusader unit. The leading nalalors for Coach Ged Schweikerl 
are freeslylers Charlie Zlock '80 ILevillown. Pa. land Pete Rile '81 IPottslown. Pa), and butterflier 
Polly Wilson '82 I Miltington. NJ.). 

Coach Bruce Wagenseller's cross country team was the shining light of the Orange and Maroon fall 
sports season, compiling a, 10-3 record, its best mark since 1971. Russ Stevenson '80 (Midlothian, Va.). 
Dave Cashour '81 (Tinton Falls, NJ.), and Larry Smith '83 (Selinsgrove) led the way for the SU 
harriers. The only sour note of the campaign was heard at the MAC Championships where the Crusaders 
proved they were not mudders, finishing a disappointing tenth in ankle-deep slop at Fort Indiantown 
Gap. 



Was it just forgetfulness or was it smug overconfidence that caused Wilkes College officials to fail to 
bring the trophy to the football field for their annual Anthracite Bowl on Nov. 10? It was an error made I 
especially embarrassing by Susquehanna's come-from-behind 8-7 win. as the Colonels failed to sue- f 
cessfully defend their trophy for the first lime in several years. 

The Anthracite Bowl triumph showed the worth of the vastly improved SU eleven A lesser team 
could have easily given up when down 7-0 in the second half of the final game, apparently enroute to its 
eighth straight loss. However, the Orange and Maroon made a stirring rally that earned their second win 
(twice last year's total) and will make the long off-season much easier to live through 

The Crusaders made great statistical improvements over the previous year in nearly every offensive 
and defensive category. Total offense went up from 1243 to I780and tola/defense went down from 2851 t 
to 2352 for a combined two-way betterment of over 1000 yards. 

The lop player was captain and linebacker Bob Fessler '80 (Orwigshurg. Pa. I. who received the 
Clyde Spitzner Memorial Most Valuable Player Award for the second straight year He established what 
are believed to be SU tackling records with 25 in one game. 152 for the season, and 451 for his career

Safety J effHauck '80 1 Carlisle. Pa ). who led the team in interceptions with 3. and quarterback Tom 
O'Neill '80 I West Reading. Pa I. who passed for 497 yards, were the only other seniors on the squad. 

Coach Bill Moll's 1980 rosier should list some 40 returning lettermen who will give the Crusaders 
the potential for their first winning season in ten years The returnees will include this fall's leaders in 
rushing, passing, and receiving. 

Fullback Rock Shadduek '82 1 Athens. Pa ) gained 263 yards on 83 carries, and halfback Rick Wolfe

Pa I the most yards 1305 on 12 catches for an average of over 25 yards per reception ); Hipp Sassaman '82 
lllummek Wharf, Pa.) the most touchdowns (3 among 17 catches for 213 yards). 

Following a discouraging 5-8 campaign. Neil Potter submitted his resignation as soccer coach A 
successor has not yet been named. The 1979 team, which began the season with hopes of becoming one of 
the best in SU history, "lacked leadership," according to Potter. The Crusader booters set a school 
record with 8 goals in the opening win over Juniata, but t 
mark for most goals allowed with 36.

Coach Connie Delbaugh's frustrated SU field hockey team managed to win only 20 percent of the 
games it didn't lose (record: 1-6-4). Winless with one lie in their first seven outings, the Crusader\ came 
back to go unbeaten in their last four, although wailing until the finale to score their only win Candy

Voile) ball has arrived at Susquehanna. The I979 team scored three wins, the most in the sport's 
ih rc e-year history at SU.bul the overall quality of play improved to a much greater extent than is shown 
b> the won-losl record. This was brought about entirely by players who will be returning next year, most 
Barbi Horton '81 (Silver Spring. Md.) and three members of the class of '83— Allison Camps 
Aorih Caldwell, NJ.|, Annette Moscr (Huntingdon. Pa), and Shan Reich (Springfield, N.J.). Coach 
pjt Reiland may gel her first winning season next fall. 

As SU spans enter the !9H0s. it seems appropriate to review the '70s. The two most significant 
developments during the past decade have been the opening of the new Physical Education Center and 
i he growth of women's athletics. These two factors have placed Susquehanna athletics among the best 
{hat American small colleges have to offer, both in terms of facilities and in terms of offering programs 
that meet the interests of all students, both male and female. 

Three new teams have been started— women's voile vball and Softball and coed swimming, the latter 
made possible by the new swimming pool. There are now 15 varsity sports atSU. nine for men. 
omen, ■"<<■ . oed 

While many fans bemoan the state of Crusader football, which has not had a winning season since 
1970. the fact is that owrall SV athletics have enjoyed considerable success during the last 10 years. The 
untr) wet tr, field hotkey, wrestling, men's and women's basketball, golf baseball, track, and 
« omen's tennis teams have all achieved some of I heir best records in history during the 1970s. This is not 
( ,>untmg the softball team which has been a winner since its inception two years ago. Football, volleyball. 
and men's tennis are the only areas in which the Crusaders have not enjoyed ai least one highly successful 
tampaign in recent years. 

The decade opened with the Orange and Maroon taking Middle A tlantic Conference championships 
in Woihall and track and closed with SU winning the MAC women's tennis title. Prestigious individual 
honors were won by Gerry Huesken '77. recipient of top scholar-athlete awards from the National Fool- 
hall Foundation and the NCAA. and MikeScheib '78. winner of the Basketball Hallo/Fames Nai smith 
i ward. 

The evidence of the 1970s indicates that Susquehanna has a healthy altitude toward sports and can 
win laurels on the playing field while maintaining athletics in proper perspective as but one component in 
the overall educational program.

When Spoon River became a ganglion 
For the monster brain Chicago 
These were the signs I painted, which 

showed 
What ruled America: 
Vote tor Patrick Kelly and save taxes; 
I am for men, and this Is the cigar; 
This generation shall not see death; 
Hear Pastor Valentine; 
Eat Healthina and live; 
Chew Floss's gum and keep your teeth; 
Twenty-five dollars tor a complete funeral; 
Insure your lite; 

Three per cent for your money; 
Come to the automat. 

And it there is any evidence 
Of a civilization better, 
I'd like to see the signs. 

—Marx the Sign Painter, from "The New 
Spoon River" by Edgar Lee Masters. 

"The New Spoon River," an anthology of 
Spoon River residents speaking from the grave to 
set the records straight, will take life on the Ben- 
jamin Apple Theatre stage at Susquehanna Uni- 
versity, Selinsgrove, in November. 

"The New Spoon River," like its predecessor 
"Spoon River Anthology," concerns ghosts of the 
community's residents rising up from the grave to 
speak their piece. Besides Marx the Sign Painter, 
there's Ella Snook, post mistress of Spoon River 
who judges people by their altitude toward getting 
mail. And Eraslus Wilson, a soldier wondering 
where the enemy's bullet would hit him when he 
suddenly realizes it's hit him in the chest; and 
Henry Yewdall, a reporter for the Spoon River 
paper who was told to write the news as it was 
nicest, not truest; and Lucille Lusk who shed her 
virginity to Lucius Atherton and humorously 
listed other more patrician ladies who had done 
the same. 

Spoon River is a moralistic community being 
edged into a new age by the industrial revolution. 
Some of its residents are victims of its moral 
views, some its perpetrators. There's Jacob Farm- 
er who was hung for killing a man who bent the 



of his hard-earned land, and

The style of readers the 
impact. Unlike other drarr 
there is plenty of scenery 
readers theatre usually has little or no costume 
change. The actors arc generally all on stage at the 
same time and stand to read their part Thedrama 
of the production depends on the actor's voice con- 
trol. 

"Spoon River" is written in such a way that it 
makes a popular readers theatre production, 
Corriston said. Other popular selections are "Un- 
der Milkwood" and "The World of Carl 
Sandberg." 

The Susquehanna production steps out of 
readers theatre style only slightly. The seven 
players are memorizing their lines and instead of 
standing recitation style, Alison Berger— who 
became director when Cornston left for West 
Liberty — has set up props such as ramps and 
benches for the actors to walk around or sit on 
when they're in character. Although Corriston has 
left Susquehanna, he has continued to help with 
the production. 

Next to each performer's chair will be a box of 
small items to help illustrate the speaker, like 
scissors for barber Yank Sword and a top hat and 
cigar for politician Abraham Lincoln Pugsley. 



771/1 article is reprinted, with permission. 
from The Dally Item ofSunbun. Oct 75, 
1979. The premiere performances were 
held Nov 2 and 3, Composer John Fries, of 
the music faculty, graduated from Sus- 
quehanna in 1961. 



Cast members are Mike Malinchok, Jane 
Beyerle, Janet Heaton. Thomas Hampel, Bill 
Schauf, Cheri Burchfield and Charlie Grube. 

Corriston developed the idea during the summer 
of 1976 while he was director of the SU summer 
theatre. One of the production numbers that year 
was "Spoon River Anthology." The following 
year, he came across the New Spoon River 
Anthology and in researching found no one had 
prepared it for the stage. The idea fomented for a 
year and then Fries was drawn into the plans to do 
the musical score. 

Together they approached the university's 
Faculty Grant Research Committee to get funding 
for the joint music department-theatre department 
project. With the grant, Corriston began thejob of 
trimming down the 354 characters to about 72 or 
75. This past June Fries began writing the music. 

"The New Spoon River" was published in 1924, 
but Fries's music is not a reflection of that period 
between barrel house piano and big bands. 
Although he said he started with that in mind, he 
found that Masters's poems still had relevant 
messages. So he updated the music and created 
songs with such contemporary styles as disco, hard 
rock and jazz. 

Fries said he composed two pieces for the 
production, "The Money Nerve" and "The 
Children of Darkness." 

Set to a disco sound, "The Money Nerve" con- 
cerns thievery. Fries explained, a topic that often 
crops up in speeches by Masters characters. 
Reflecting that theme is the verse: "The money 
nerve, the money nerve, I love to pinch the money 
nerve. I'll go through life as happy as can be. The 
only one I care about is me." 

"The Children of Darkne 
of temptation and includes a male ■ 
rock style. He's trying to break up a 
is tormented, and his capitulation i 
verse: "Can't resist the child of darkness no 
Take my hand and ease me down. Gonna mo 
right on again with you, On< 
we're through." 

Two others. "The Poncey Children" and "Hope 
for Tomorrow," are selections from the anthology 
freely set to music. 

"The Poncey Children," a particularly sad story 
of rive children who died within hours of birth, is 
lightened by a jazz waltz. "Hope for Tomorrow" 
starts like a chorale and turns into a Latin number. 

In addition, Fries researched the period and 
found a fiddler's tune also called Spoon River that 
another composer had set to double piano during 
Edgar Lee Master's time. Fries said he uses 
variations of that tune, weaving it around several 
characters for "incidental" music. 

A recording of the dual piano version will open 
the SU production. Fries explained, then about 
halfwa) ihrnugh Fries will pick up the tunc live 
backstage with bass and drum support. As the 
lights go down, a lone fiddler will come on stage to 
finger the original ditty 

C urrision and Fries have gotten to know 
Masters's widow since the production began. 
Masters died in the 1950s at the age of 81 , so when 
Corriston sought permission from the publishing 
house to prepare a Spoon River script, he was sur- 
prised to receive a reply from Ellen Masters Mrs 
Masters was 30 years her husband's junior when

There is hope that the script will be published

Fries said the Dramatist Music Service has ex- 
pressed interest in their product.

FALL 1979 SUSQUEHANNA ALUMNUS Page 19 




Instructor Shoots Way to Fame 



Richard L. Baker was a "marked 
a marksman. The 3l-year-old SU 
sually just another face 
in the crowd, but not when involved in rifle- 
■■i-inntinji! competition. 

"Two years ago nobody knew me," Baker says, 
"but now I can't walk onto a rifle range without 
being recognized." Notoriety among rifle shooters 
came to Baker in the summer of l°78 when he won 
the light varmint and overall titles at the U.S. 
National Benchrest Rifle Championships. His pic- 
lure appeared in national rifle shooters* maga- 
zines, making him a celebrity in that circle. 

He did not perform quite as well during the 
summer of 1 979, partly because of difficulty in 
"handling the pressure" of being tagged as the 
man to beat at any event he entered. However, he 
again proved he is a world-class shooter by placing 
seventh at the National Championships and fourth 
at the International Benchrest Shooters Cham- 
pionships. 

Baker feels he is just entering his prime years, 
which arrive at about the mid-30s for rifle 
shooters. He hopes for at least one more successful 
summer on the benchrest circuit, following which 
he will set his sights on a bigger goal— to compete 
m the 1984 Olympics. 

Different rules and techniques are employed in 
Olympic-style shooting, where the benchrest is not 
used. Baker believes he will need about two years 
of working under a good Olympic rifle coach in or- 
der to learn if he has the talent for that kind of 
shooting. He hopes to receive the coaching he 
needs, and work on his doctorate, at Pennsylvania 
State University. 

The SU instructor has been interested in rifles 

)r as long as he can remember, and this interest 

as heightened during his four-year stint in the 
U.S. Marine Corps. He does not think it is un- 



usual for an accountant to be a marksman. "The 
competition is very technical and detailed in 
nature and attracts people who have that kind of 
orientation," he says. 

The bullets and rifles are all hand-made to exact 
specifications for the greatest possible accuracy. 
Competitors don't shoot at a bull's-eye but rather 
are judged according to how close together they 
can place their bullets. The top score comes when 
five shots together make only one hole no larger 
than a bullet. 

Baker came to Susquehanna in 1977. He holds 
B.S. and MBA degrees from Bloomsburg State 
College and is licensed as a C.P.A. in the Com- 
ilth of Pennsylvania. 



Students Fast for Hunger 

The SU Chapel Council promoted a fast for 
the relief of world hunger on November 15. Stu- 
dents were asked to give up a meal that day with 
the understanding that the M.W. Wood Food Ser- 
vice would donate money for each meal not eaten. 

More than 1000 repasts were relinquished, 
and some $540 was raised. The money, designated 
by SU for the benefit of the Cambodian refugees, 
was sent to the Boston office of Oxfam (Oxford for 
Famine). Initiated at Oxford University in 
England in the 1940s, Oxfam's efforts for the relief 
of world hunger have been adopted by many 
American colleges as an annual project. 

With the cooperation of Food Service Direc- 
tor Diane Ilgenfritz, the Susquehanna fast was 
organized by Ruth Hebel '82 (Frenchville. Pa.) 
and Mike Malinchok '82 (Frackville. Pa.) of the 
Chapel Council under the direction of Interim 
Chaplain Paul Reaser.

Business and Society . . . 

TO ENTER THE CIRCLE OF THOUGHT LEADERS 



by PETER SILVESTRI 

"The greatest issue facing our present generation of stu- 
dents is how our society should produce and distribute 
wealth," says Susquehanna's Dr. William A. Rock. "If this 
generation doesn't settle this issue, events will decide it for 
them," Dr. Rock warns. 

Around this issue is centered the educational effort of the 
University's Institute of Business and Society, directed by 
Dr. Rock. Originally established in 1977 as the Program in 
Business and Society, this undertaking was given the status 
of an Institute at Susquehanna last fall. Holding faculty rank 
as a visiting professor, Dr. Rock has been director of 
Business and Society since its beginning. 

The program was inaugurated with the goal of integrating 
instruction in business and the liberal arts — to seek better 
ways to teach business to the liberal arts student and liberal 
arts to the business student. It examines the objectives of a 
good society and how the means used by our society to 
generate wealth enhance or impede the realization of these 
objectives. 

Alternative systems of generating wealth are explored, 
along with their advantages and disadvantages, in terms of 
implementing societal objectives. The assumptions of both 
advocates and opponents of the existing economic system 
and the legitimacy of major corporations and capitalism 
within American society are discussed. 

"After a lifetime spent studying the wealth-producing sec- 
tor in relation to society as a whole," says Dr. Rock, "I have 
little patience with approaches to the validity of the 
American business system in any narrower context than that 
of the whole societal question." 

A graduate of Providence College, he earned a master's 
degree in philosophy and a lectorate in theology at the 
Aquinas Institute and a doctorate in theology at the Univer- 
sity of Fribourg in Switzerland. 

He taught at the Aquinas Institute and in the College of 
Commerce of DePaul University for 12 years, during which 
he founded and directed the Priory Press. For 20 years Dr. 
Rock has been a consultant on business practices to hospitals 
and professional associations and on social and ethical issues 
to business associations and major corporations. Because of 
long-standing commitments and to keep an active involve- 
ment in the business world, he continues to serve several 
clients. 



Dr. Rock believes that "an enterprise economy is the in- 
dispensable foundation of a free society." But, he says, "I am 
not here because I cherish the large corporations that 
necessarily dominate contemporary enterprise. I am here 
because I want to do what I can to help our generation pass 
on a commitment to freedom, with its responsibilities, and 
the essential structures of freedom to another generation. As 
I see it, an enterprise economy is one of those structures, 
perhaps the crucial one. It is certainly a vital support wall of 
a decent, humane society," Dr. Rock states. 

"I have discovered that SU students are not notably anti- 
business," notes Dr. Rock. "Indeed the more dominant prej- 
udice is probably naively pro-business. I have tried to 
develop a sophisticated approach to the role of enterprise in 
American society among all students whatever their major 
might be. Those majoring in business are sometimes blind to 
the imperatives of the society in which they would be in- 
itiating business careers. Other students may have little grasp 
of the wealth-producing function of the private sector." 

Business majors, explains Dr. Rock, need to realize that 
the public's expectations of the corporations are not simply 
materialistic but include a concern about the quality of life. 
The non-business student, on the other hand, needs a realistic 
understanding of the profit-making function of corporations. 

Dr. Rock intends for the Institute of Business and Society 
to work toward development of a plan "designed to prepare 
future business people to enter with assurance into the circle 
of America's 'thought leaders.' Such a plan — philosophy, 
programs, textbooks — could become a model for small, 
private colleges across the country," he says. 

"A college is not a marketplace firm which produces 
whatever is in demand," Dr. Rock believes. "It must take ac- 
count of the market," he says, "but its unique concern cannot 
be thus limited. Its total role is to ensure that its graduates be 
prepared to be fine human beings, not merely good at a job. 

"The best thing that a small college has to offer," Dr. 
Rock points out, "is the genuine interest of faculty members 
in the students. This interest transcends subject matter and 
extends to deep concern about what the whole college ex- 
perience does to a student. To me, the bottom line of the In- 
stitute of Business and Society is not the facts it can teach; it 
is the humane dimension it can contribute to the young men 
and women who come to Susquehanna to prepare for life — 




Business A Society's William A. Rock 



not merely for one element of life, important as it is, a job." 
The central component of the Institute is interdisciplinary 
courses which help students better understand the in- 
terrelationships among business, government, social struc- 
tures, the family, the individual, and the ethical framework 
of our civilization. 

Dr. Rock teaches one course each term. These are 
Business and Government, Values and American Business, 
and a Seminar on varying topics. In the future he hopes to in- 
volve other faculty members who can view business from the 
perspectives of sociology, psychology, ethics, and history. 
Dr. Rock believes that the issue-oriented, interdisciplinary

SU and the Covenant with the Church 

The relationship that Susquehanna University enjoys with the Lutheran Church in 
America and its Central Pennsylvania Synod was put into words, labeled a "covenant. ' and 
adopted by synod and university in 1 973. A similar covenant exists between synod and Get- 
tysburg College— as well as between other LCA colleges and the synods related to them. A 
year or so after the Susquehanna and Gettysburg covenants were adopted, they were sum- 
marized in a little green flyer so they could be more easily distributed and understood by all 
constituencies. The text was reprinted in the fall I975 issue of Susquehanna Alumnus. 

The covenant statements are intended to be guidelines. They offer an historical perspec- 
tive for the current relationships and then spell out specific areas of responsibility, coopera- 
tion, and opportunities for strengthening and increasing the benefits therefrom. The fourteen 
areas dealt with range all the way from standards of academic performance and the study of 
religion to finances and the use of facilities, concluding with provision for the covenants to be 
reviewed and renewed or revised at decent intervals — which speaks to the changing nature of 
things. 

A review has been underway for the past year. At this writing there is a new statement 
being given final polishing for submission to the synod, Gettysburg, and Susquehanna for 
consideration at upcoming meetings of their boards of governance. With luck, it will be 
adopted officially by all three bodies before midsummer. 

All this seems to have taken a long time, but 1 think the process has been good, and has 
been instructive. Kor one thing, a great many people have had opportunity to comment and 
make suggestions: all pastors in the synod as well as lay leaders; all faculty, staff, and board 
members of the two colleges. A task force of about a dozen of us has struggled to include all 
valid ideas and finalize the wording. 

The little green flyer served some very useful purposes. It proved that the original, 
lengthy statements could indeed be simplified and reduced in size, and that a single document 
would suffice for both colleges. This became a kind of model for the revision. 

Meanwhile, some of the church's theologians decided that the word "covenant" was in- 
appropriate for describing the college-synod relationship. One can get all tangled up in the 
legal and the theological definitions, and most of us think it's a perfectly good word which 
says what we want to say, but we agreed to follow the church's lead and abandon the term. 
Hence, the new paper is called a partnership statement — formally: "Statement of 
Partnership Between the Central Pennsylvania Synod of the Lutheran Church in America 
and the Institutions of Higher Education Related to It: Gettysburg College and Susquehanna 
University." 

Susquehanna's connection with the church dates all the way back to the school's 
founding in 1858. It's one of the things that gives the University its unique character and is, 
therefore, precious to many. Some seem to misunderstand the church relationship and think 
of it as restrictive, which is unfortunate. Given the principle of separation of church and state, 
it is only at colleges like Susquehanna where the freedom exists to teach and learn about 
religion and faith in all their dimensions. A deep concern for moral values is taking hold to- 
day; I for one am grateful that there are institutions where it is possible for undergraduates to 
explore these matters thoroughly. And grateful that in our pluralistic society there is the 
variety of higher-education opportunities which affords everyone a choice. 

Very soon we expect to have an approved Statement of Partnership and to share it with 
the entire University community. We hope you will agree that our efforts were worthwhile 
and that the document helps us to see more clearly what being church-related means to Sus- 
quehanna in 1980.

focus of the Institute has a value to students which goes 
beyond the business-society issue itself. "Coming to grips 
with any key issue," he says, "provides students with realistic 
experience of the relevance of the disciplines they are study- 
ing to the numerous practical decisions they will be called 
upon to make in life. I am convinced that an issue-oriented 
exercise is an essential ingredient of a college education," Dr. 
Rock says. 

"Our main purpose," Dr. Rock explains, "is not to give 
the students 'answers' but to get students to think about a 
problem and ask the right questions." 

The most visible facet of the Business and Society program 
is the many guest speakers which Dr. Rock has brought to 
the campus "to bring the issue to life and keep its considera- 
tion close to reality." Guests have included prominent men 
and women from business, journalism, and government, who

visit classes and student groups, are available to students for

These guests also speak at luncheon programs designed for 
business and civic leaders from the surrounding community. 
A period of informal discussion on subjects raised by those 
attending is followed by a formal address. This aspect of the 
Business and Society program has become a vital part of the 
University's relationship with the public in the Susquehanna 
Valley. Dr. Rock himself has been asked to speak at several 
community events in the region and has developed a close 



relationship with the local Chamber of Commerce. He is 
asked at each Chamber meeting to report on Business and 
Society activities. He organized a series of 10 weekly 
breakfast meetings on "Economics for Business People" and 
ts planning a series on "Money" for this spring. 

Late last December you might have read, in your favorite 
newspaper, an Associated Press story datelined "Selins- 
grove, Pa.," about Paul Stefanik, retired Mobil Oil execu- 
tive, who "now rides a circuit of colleges preaching that oil 
companies are not the devils some people believe." 

AP correspondent Rich Kirkpatrick came to Susquehanna 
to cover a Business and Society luncheon address by 
Stefanik. The article was carried by more than 30 
newspapers, including the San Francisco Sunday Examiner 
& Chronicle and a number in Texas, with a combined cir- 
culation of over three million. 

While it is rare for an event at Susquehanna to receive such 
national coverage, the appearance by Stefanik was not un- 
usual in the life of the University. He is one of 13 notables 
who have visited Susquehanna under Business and Society 
sponsorship — wholly or in part. 

The list includes Barron's Managing Editor Alan Abelson, 
Foundation for Economic Education President Leonard 
Reed, former Pennsylvania Governor Ray Shafer, U.S. 
Congressman from Pennsylvania Bud Shuster, New York

Vice President Joy Tannian, Public Relations Consultant 
and Baritone Singer Robert Patterson, and Pennsylvania 
Power and Light President Robert Campbell. 

The Business and Society program has been entirely 
funded from outside sources and the University plans to 
maintain the Institute on that basis in the future. Funding 
to date has included $100,000 from the J. Howard Pew 
Freedom Trust, $18,000 from the Shelby Cullom Davis 
Foundation, and $20,000 from local sources. 

The Institute for Business and Society is neither "pro" nor 
"anti" business, according to Dr. Rock. "The University has 
no room for propaganda," he says. "If the American 
business system needs to play fast and loose with the truth to 
win acceptance, it neither deserves to be accepted nor will be. 

"It is part of the maturing process to grow to appreciate 
distinctions," he says. "Flaws in useful instruments are to be 
corrected as far as possible, but are not valid reasons for 
throwing the instrument out. 

"Everyone has a vested interest in the business system, 
whether as investor, employee, or customer. Just as non- 
business majors should have an accurate and objective un- 
derstanding of so important an influence on their lives and on 
the society in which they live, so, too, business majors should 
have a complete awareness of the ways in which what they do 
affects society and influences the lives of their fellow 
citizens," states Dr. Rock.

THE CAMPUS AND THE COURTS 



Once a sanctuary, 

the university is 

now plagued with 

growing 

intervention 

by the courts. 



When coed Beatrice Anthony caused 
some minor difficulties in her sorority, 
campus officials decided she was not 
"a typical Syracuse girl" and promptly 
expelled her. Ms. Anthony sued Syra- 
cuse University and lost. The court 
ruled that attendance at a private uni- 
versity is a privilege, not a right, and 
can be revoked at any time, for practi- 
cally any reason. 

That was fifty years ago, when a 
lawsuit by a student was rare. Times 
have changed, and so have the atti- 
tudes of judges. Not long ago, for ex- 
ample, Brigham Young University ex- 
pelled a student for what seemed a 
clear case of academic dishonesty: us- 
ing a professor's name on a paper in or- 
der to get it published. The judge in the 
ensuing court case told the jury that it 
could disregard the university's stan- 
dards of honesty in deciding the Tight- 
ness of the dismissal. The student was 
promptly awarded $88,000 in damages. 

After centuries of benign neglect by 
the courts, colleges and universities 
now find themselves confronting a le- 
gion of federal, state, and local laws 
which .ilTect \irtually all of their oper- 
ations, and a growing body of court de- 
cisions which redefine their powers 
and their place in society. 

More people are suing more colleges 
for more reasons than anyone could 
have dreamed when Beatrice Anthony 
«em lo court half a century ago. Suits 
range across a broad spectrum of is- 
sues from exploitation in athletic re- 



cruiting to sexual harassment by pro- 
fessors; from job discrimination to 
"academic malpractice." And lawyers, 
who only a few years ago visited the 
campus on rare occasions for legal con- 
sultation, are now key members of the 
institution's administrative team. Here 
are some obvious signs of the legal sys- 
tem's growing intervention in higher 
education: 

► One of Washington's fastest-grow- 
ing associations today is NACUA— 
the National Association of College 
and University Attorneys. When the 
group was founded in 1961, only 34 
schools (out of more than 2,000) were 
members. Now, with in-house legal 
counsel considered a necessity on most 
campuses, NACUA claims more than 
1,000 institutional members. 

► The literature of higher education 
law has grown from practically nothing 
two decades ago to include today sev- 
eral national journals, a series of di- 
gests, and copious briefing papers pre- 
pared by education groups. There is 
also a Kansas-based National Organi- 
zation for Legal Problems in Education 
which tracks court rulings in the field, 
and several legal consortia to help pool 
information and defray the rising costs 
of litigation. 

► For one recent two-week period. 
The Chronicle of Higher Education 
listed 17 national meetings devoted to 
legal issues in higher education. 

Government-mandated social legisla- 
tion and the related directives and 



guidelines from federal agencies are the 
most rapidly expanding source of col- 
lege law. Titles VI and VII of the Civil 
Rights Act of 1964. Title IX of the 
Education Amendments of 1972 ban- 
ning sex discrimination. Sections 503 
and 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 
1973 forbidding discrimination against 
the handicapped, the Age Discrimina- 
tion in Federally Assisted Programs 
Act of 1975 and a number of Executive 
Orders — all of these and more (some 
60,000 pages of new federal require- 
ments) have paved the way for con- 
tinuous legal action against institutions 
of higher learning. 

State governments, too, are getting 
tougher in their dealings with colleges 
and universities. Last year, national 
education groups were disappointed 
when the Supreme Court let stand a 
1976 Pennsylvania law requiring all 
federal funds coming into the slate to 
be funneled through the state legisla- 
ture. Alarmed educators see the Penn- 
sylvania case as a "dangerous prece- 
dent" that risks politicization of 
academic research and management. A 
number of other states have passed or 
are considering similar legislation, al- 
though most have worked out compro- 
mises or exemptions with their colleges 
and universities. 

Higher education is nut. of course, 
alone in being plagued with legal prob- 
lems. The nation seems to he preoccu- 
pied with litigation, and most Ameri- 
can institutions have become targets

for lawsuits. The rise of consumerism. 
the passage of sweeping civil rights 
measures, and a growing sense of 
alienation from the "establishment" on 
the part of many have made us. in the 
words of Stanford President Richard 
Lyman, "the greatest litigators in 
world histor) ." 

Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes once 
warned his fellow jurists to be prepared 
in their careers to oversee the disman- 
tling of much in life they held dear. In 
America, he noted, "the orderly 
change of law" supplants revolution. 

Intense, often painful, examination 
of our values and directions as a soci- 
ety has produced a revolution of sorts. 
And even Justice Holmes might be 
startled by how readily we Americans 
are turning to the courts to resolve our 
problems. Questions that once were 
settled through accommodation and 
compromise are now taken into the 
courtroom. The number of civil suits 
filed in federal courts doubled between 
I960 and 1975. with the Supreme 
Court's caseload almost tripling in ten 
years. Newsweek, echoing Holmes in 
spirit if not intent, calls the mounting 
influence of law on American life sim- 
ply "one of the great, unnoticed revo- 
lutions in U.S. history." 

The results of this revolution are 
now being noticed. They involve in 
many cases the wholesale re-weaving 
of what one jurist calls "the intricate 
web of relationships between people, 
government, and institutions." Some 
see dangers in that. Donald Horowitz, 
in his book The Conns and Social 
Policy, worries about the conse- 
quences of accepting narrow, piece- 
meal judicial solutions to what are 
complex problems of national priori- 
ties. And he asserts that judges are 
generalists. not specialists; they cannot 
fine-tune their decisions to fit the spe- 
cial requirements of one. specialized 
area of American life. 

Because of its unique structure and 



No activity of the college 

is now invulnerable 
to intrusion by the courts. 



purpose, American higher education 
has been remarkably free over the 
decades to chart its own course. This 
freedom grew out of a notion as old as 
the first medieval gatherings of teach- 
ers .md students: that the law cannot 
presume sufficient knowledge to guide 
scholars in their search for truth. High- 
er education was a world apart, a 
republic of scholars. Even the word 
university comes from the Latin Uni~ 
versitas, which in Roman law denoted 
a self-governing corporate unit. 

Until recently. Americans fully sup- 
ported the idea that universities gov- 
erned their own delicate enterprise 
with a complicated balance of under- 
standings, intuitions, and subtleties. 
We granted our institutions of learning 
legal exemptions and immunities. And 
in the rare instances when colleges 
were brought before the bar. the courts 
deferred to academic judgement as a 
matter of course, asking not whether 
an action taken was wise or correct, 
but only whether it had been taken 
with due authority. 

No longer. Beginning with World 
War II. higher education abandoned us 
"splendid isolation" and became an 
active participant in the day-to-day af- 
fairs of society— from conducting re- 
search under contract to training spe- 



cial constituent groups like the 
veterans. Colleges and universities 
were declared by a series of Congress- 
es and Presidents to be a "national 
resource" and universal higher educa- 
tion became a national goal. Federal 
dollars in ever-increasing amounts 
flowed to the campuses. The more

deeply colleges and universities be- 
came involved in helping society to 
meet specific goals and the more de- 
pendent on government funds they be- 
came, the less persuasive was their 
claim to immunity and apartness. 

Today higher education fares little 
better than big business in the number 
and range of lawsuits brought against 
it. The provisions of the 1964 Civil 
Rights Act barring race and sex dis- 
crimination in employment, for exam- 
ple, did not become applicable to high- 
er education until 1972. But less than 
two years later, there were already 
more than 1 .600 charges of sex dis- 
crimination alone against colleges and 
universities on file with the Equal Em- 
ployment Opportunity Commission. 
This past fall, the director of the U.S. 



Office of Civil Rights said that one- 
fourth of the complaints filed with ocr 
involved higher education. 

And headline-producing discrimina- 
tion suits are only the tip of the legal 
iceberg for academe. With unionism a 
growing force on campuses, universi- 
ties increasingly find themselves in 
court over labor practices. Students, 
aroused by the consumerism move- 
ment, are suing because their courses 
do not meet their expectations Tax 
exemptions are being challenged. Even 
playing rock songs at a student concert 
can be perilous, as Harvard discovered 
when it was recently sued for violation 
of the 1976 Copyright Act. 

"The range of problems facing us is 
absolutely enormous." says Norman 
L. Epstein, who. when he was vice 
chancellor and chief counsel for the 
California Stale University and Col- 
lege system, directed a staff of some 14 
lawyers. He says his office's workload 
is divided into about 30 functional 
areas. "We used to say, in recruiting 
new lawyers, that we handled just 
about everything but admiralty law. 
Now we handle admiralty as well." 

Indeed. There is virtually no area of 
higher education that is not now vul- 
nerable to court intrusion. Consider 
some of the major legal battlezones. 

Liability. Colleges and universities 
were once shielded even from lawsuits 



arising out of negligence The rationale 
of the courts was that public institu- 
tions, as uniis of government, were 
immune, and private colleges were 
charitable institutions providing educa- 
tion at less than cost, and thus needed 
their assets for good works. 

Such immunity, hard lo imagine in 
our litigious age. has crumbled, as 
rising insurance rates show. At the 
University of Michigan, for example. 
insurance costs jumped by more than 
470 per cent between 1968 and 1976. 
Liability coverage, to protect the insti- 
tution and its staff from personal injury 
and damage suits, skyrocketed by an 
amazing 2.875 per cent (from $104,000 
to $3-million) in the same period. 

Negligence is defined very broadly 
in some cases. A Marquette University 
law student sued because, he said, a

"mind-control" course offered as an 
aid to study threw him into a deep 
depression. Delaware Valley College 
is trying to overturn a $l-million negli- 
gence verdict in a case involving an 
auto accident which left a student a 
quadriplegic; the accident occurred on

a return (rip from an off-campus class 
party at which beer was served. San 
Diego State University has been sued 
in the rape and murder of a coed in her 
dormitory room by a non-student. The 
dorm room door was not forced, and 
the dormitory was shown to be safe, 
but the court ruled that the university, 
in being aware of a chronic pattern of 
violent assaults on women in the uni- 
versity community, should have taken 
"responsible precautions to reduce the 
hazard and to protect the residents in 
the university dormitories, or to warn 
the students, or to train the students to 
protect themselves." 

Individual administrators may be 
held personally liable in some cases. 
Robert Bickel. counsel at Florida State 
University, says individuals "may be 
involved. ..for anything from searching 
a dormitory to non-renewal of a faculty 
member"s contract." Perhaps more sig- 
nificant is a 1978 Supreme Court ruling

which makes "local governments" 
(hence, public colleges and universi- 
ties) liable for violating an individual's 
rights; previously, only an individual 
official could be sued and the school, 
as a branch of government, was im- 
mune. Now damages can be collected 
from the institutions, which, says Mar- 
ion McGhehey. executive secretary of 
the National Organization on Legal 
Problems in Education, have "deeper 
pockets to dig into." 

Consumerism. More and more stu- 
dents are suing to make their colleges 
more accountable, or to get informa- 
tion they think they are entitled to, or 
because they feel they didn't get their 
money's worth. And on many campus- 
es, the students have free or inexpen- 
sive legal assistance. The legal service 
at the University of Maine at Orono, 
for example, handled 73 cases against 
the university last year. Here are some 
recent examples showing the wide 
range of consumer suits; 

► Students at George Washington 
University and the University of 
Bridgeport sued their institutions be- 
cause they said courses they took were 
"pure junk" and "worthless." 

► A Penn State graduate student 
dismissed for poor academic perform- 
ance sued because he claimed the deci- 
sion was too subjective. 

► A group of Northwestern medical 
students filed suit over a 57 per cent 
tuition increase. They said the hike 
violated an implied contract in the 
college's catalog to keep fee increases 
"reasonable." 

► A graduate of Southern Universi- 
ty's law school filed suit after failing 
the state bar examination three times. 
He claimed that the school had not 
prepared him to take the test. 

► Eight Vanderbilt doctoral students 
won $30,000 in damages because a 
court agreed with them that a manage- 
ment program they were enrolled in 
was "hastily embarked on, vague, and 
ill-defined." 

Not many court battles in this hazy 
area of consumerism are settled in 
favor of students, but the growth in the 
number of such suits, and the willing- 
ness of more and more courts to hear 
them, may signal that a legal definition 
for what some are calling "academic 
malpractice" is on the way. Already, 
courts have come to view catalogs, 
bulletins, and other publications as part 
of the contractual agreement between 
the student and the university. Sheldon 
Steinbach. of the American Council on 
Education, warns, "If you say this 
course is going to do something and it 
doesn't, you've got a potential legal 
problem on your hands." 

Research. Does the First Amend- 
ment cover what might be called "the 
right of inquiry"? Scholars hope so 
because they feel that new and pro- 
posed guidelines for federally spon- 
sored research violate such rights. For 
example, proposed guidelines to pro- 
tect human subjects in social science 
and humanistic research have pro- 
duced outrage in the academic commu- 
nity because they require researchers 
who interview, study, observe, or 
merely talk to human subjects to sub- 
mit projects to the same kinds of peer- 
review boards that biological scientists 
do. Duke University political scientist 
James David Barber suggests such a 
regulation would mean that he "can't 
go out and talk with some politician 
and note his or her views without going 
through some HEW prior censorship." 



The right of the researcher to confi- 
dential notes and records is also being 
challenged, and a case soon to be 
decided by the U.S. Supreme Court 
raises the question of whether the pub- 
lic has the right to see raw research 
data (in federally funded projects) un- 
der the Freedom of Information Act. 
In a previous case involving confiden- 
tiality. Judge John B. Renfrew said: 
"Much of the raw data on which re- 
search is based is simply not made 
available except on the pledge of confi- 
dentiality. Compelled disclosure would 
. . .without question stifle research 
into questions of public policy, the 
very subjects in which the public inter- 
est is the greatest." 

Athletics. Title IX's ban on sex dis- 
crimination is revolutionizing collegiate 
athletics and generating a host of prob- 
lems, many of which are finding their 
way before courts and government 
agencies. In the eight years since the 
act's passage, both men's and women's 
athletic associations have filed suit to 
prod HEW into spelling out precisely 
what is intended under Title IX. Much 
of the confusion surrounds the applica- 
bility of Title IX to intercollegiate 
athletics, particularly revenue-produc- 
ing sports like football. 

At issue is whether Congress intend- 
ed "any education program or activity 
receiving federal financial assistance" 
to mean sports activities which do not 
themselves receive federal dollars, but 
which do bring in money for the 
schools. Women's groups say that 
equal opportunity means just that: 
equal scholarships, equal grants-in-aid. 
equal coaching staffs and facilities, and 
equal average expenditures per stu- 
dent. In institutions with big-time ath- 
letic programs, such an equalization 
process could be enormously expen- 
sive, especially since women's sports 
would not likely produce revenue the 
way men's sports do. Some 300 institu- 
tions with major intercollegiate athletic 
programs have hired a Washington 
public relations firm to represent their 
interests in the legislative and regula- 
tory arenas. 

Meanwhile, athletic equality has al- 
ready become a court issue. A federal 
district court last year ordered Michi- 
gan State University to give its female 
basketball players the same amount for 
transportation as it gives its male varsi- 
ty players. And last November, the 
Justice Department took its first legal 
actions under Title IX by moving 
against Texas A & M University and 
the University of Alaska, charging 
them with discriminating against fe- 
male students. 

Faculty hiring and promotions. A deci- 
sion rendered in the 1974 case of Faro 
vs. New York University stated: "Of 
all fields which the federal courts 
should hesitate to invade and take 
over, education and faculty appoint- 
ments at a university level are probably 
least suited for federal court supervi- 
sion." It is a measure of the swiftness 
of change in this area that the Fa/o 
precedent has already been substantial- 
ly supplanted. A year ago Christine 
Sweeney, a professor of education at 
Keene State College won a sex dis- 
crimination suit in which she charged 
that she had been denied a full profes- 
sorship unfairly on two previous occa- 
sions. Perhaps more important than the 
fact that she was the first woman to 
win a faculty promotion or tenure case, 
was the court ruling that called into 
question the "hands off" attitude that 



earlier courts had taken with respect to 
faculty promotion cases. 

The ink had hardly dried on the 
Sweeney decision before a second 
U.S. appellate court used the same 
argument in the case of Geraldine 
Powell, a part-time professor of archi- 
tecture at Syracuse who claimed her 
contract was not renewed because she 
is black. Her case was tried in the 
same court which had rendered the 
Faro decision just five years earlier. 
And although all the justices agreed 
that Professor Powell's case had no 
merit, the court now backed away from 
Faro and declared: "This anti-inter- 
ventionist policy has rendered colleges 
. . .virtually immune to charges of em- 
ployment bias." 

Labor Issues. The replacement of col- 
legiality with what David Reisman 
calls "trade union mentality" has also 
led to a proliferation of legal problems 
for colleges and universities. Columbia 
University tried to cut its budget by 
firing a group of university maids. 
They sued, claiming sex discrimina- 
tion, and the University was compelled 
to keep the maids and pay $100,000 in 
legal fees. 

The Department of Labor has sued 
Denver's Regis College to force it to

pay its student residence-hall counsel- 
ors the minimum wage (and back-pay 
allowances). Regis argues that the resi- 
dence-hall program is an educational 
program for the students and they re- 
ceive tuition, room, and board rebates. 
The case could have significant impli- 
cations for higher education. 

So could the Yeshiva University 
case to be decided by the U.S. Su- 
preme Court this year. The National 
Labor Relations Board ordered Yeshi- 
va to recognize a faculty collective 
bargaining unit. Yeshiva went to court, 
claiming that faculty are part of man- 
agement since they share in decision- 
making involving curriculum, hiring 
and promotion of faculty, and setting 
and enforcing academic standards. A 
victory by Yeshiva could curtail union- 
ization on all private campuses. 

Coping with increased litigation has 
become very expensive, and costs are 
rising rapidly at a time when colleges 
and universities are already struggling 
to make ends meet. Stanford is prob- 
ably typical: its legal expenses have 
quadrupled in less than a decade and 
now exceed $ I -million annually. Even 
at small, non-resident community col- 
leges, annual legal bills of $200,000 are 
becoming commonplace. 

Preventive measures consume much 
of the money and considerable staff 
time, as administrators (now personally 
liable) try to avoid potential lawsuits 
by checking decisions and policies 
against the mountain of state, local, 
and federal regulations that govern 
their operations these days. Shortly 
before he resigned as president of the 
University of Cincinnati, Warren Ben- 
nis complained: "1 find 1 must consult 
our lawyers over even small, trivial 
decisions. The university has so many 
suits against it now that my mother 
calls me 'my son, the defendant'." 

When an institution actually finds 
itself in court, the costs can be stagger- 



ing. In a class action sex discrimination 
suit (eventually settled out of court). 
Brown University spent more than $1- 
million in legal fees, indirect costs, and 
costs of the settlement. The University 
of Maryland spent more than $1 -mil- 
lion to win an affirmative action suit. 
And the University of California at 
Davis, still absorbing heavy legal costs 
of five years of litigation in the Allan 
Bakke reverse discrimination case, was 
handed a bill (which it is disputing) last 
fall for an additional $437,000 in legal 
fees for Bakke's lawyers. 

The cost of litigation is so high that 
institutions are increasingly eager to 
settle out of court. When a student 
sued Carleton College for violating his 
civil rights with a ban on student- 
owned automobiles, the trustees set- 
tled despite their attorney's assurance 
of victory. The trustees figured that 
settlement, even though it might en- 
courage others to sue. was preferable 
to the estimated $40,000 in legal fees it 
would cost to fight the suit. 

In his prize-winning book. The Law 
of Higher Education, Catholic Univer- 
sity Professor William A. Kaplin 
points out that costly and time consum- 
ing legal business is not confined to the 
courtroom. The increase in regulation 
and government-mandated social pro- 
grams has resulted in a variety of 
agencies, commissions, boards, and 
quasi-judicial bodies with jurisdiction 
over some aspect of higher education. 
"Proceedings can be quite complex, 
and the legal sanctions these agencies 
may invoke can be quite substantial," 
says Professor Kaplin. 

The cost is not entirely monetary 
when the courts intrude into academe. 
In peril is the right of colleges and 
universities to decide for themselves 
such matters as academic standards, 
hiring and promotion policies, criteria 
for admission, and various internal 
governance practices. Judges and ju- 
ries are more and more ready to inter- 
vene in complex academic and man-

agerial issues, and, as they do. 
institutional autonomy is eroded. For 
example: 

► A judge in Pennsylvania recently 
awarded tenure to Connie Rae Kunda. 
a physical education instructor at Muh- 
lenburg College who claimed discrimi- 
nation because she had not been told 
the full requirements for tenure at the 
time of her appointment. 

► When Wilson College's trustees 
decided to close the school last year 
because it could not reverse a steepen- 
ing decline in student enrollment, the 
judge stepped in on the side of con- 
cerned alumnae and ordered the col- 
lege to remain open. He expressed 
doubts that the college was run proper- 
ly and believed it could do a better job 
in attracting students by revamping its 
curriculum and changing its approach 
to admissions. 

► A U.S. District judge in Tennes- 
see has given predominantly black 
Tennessee State University control 
over the University of Tennessee's 
Nashville campus in order to end du- 
plicative programs and facilitate deseg- 
regation. A similar suit, seeking the 
merger of predominantly white Arm- 
strong State College with historically 




Aiioctau Prut Laitrphoto 



black Savannah State College, is being 
heard in a federal court in Georgia. 

► In New York this year, a court 
told the state's board of higher educa- 
tion that a graduate student who had 
been denied his master's degree for 
failing an examination at a state college 
should be granted one. The student 
had not been told passing the examina- 
tion was a requirement. 

Such rulings alarm educators, not 
only because they show a trend away 
from previous judicial concern with 
protecting academic freedom, but also 
because they represent the beginning 
of what former Cornell president 
James A. Perkins calls "civil jurisdic- 
tion over intellectual inquiry." 

Assessments of quality — in the se- 
lection of faculty and students, the 
planning of courses or educational pro- 
grams, the assigning of grades, and the 
awarding of degrees — form the very 
heart of the academic enterprise. Yet it 
is this assessment of quality that is 
often the focal point in discrimination 
cases. It is not an easy thing to define 
or measure. How is a judge or jury to 
know with any certainty whether a 
faculty member should receive tenure 
or whether one applicant is more suit- 
able for a position than another? To 
cope with the complexity of such ques- 
tions, courts are making procedural 
requirements stiffer and emphasizing 
hard evidence rather than informed 
intuition. As a result, says one univer- 
sity dean, measurable criteria become 

Educators see a trend

ultra-important: "The direction and 
quality of someone's research or teach- 
ing often do not count toward tenure 
appointments," he says, "only the 
number of books or articles published. 
Academic departments don't evaluate 
their members anymore, they weigh 
paper credentials." It's safer that way. 
Discrimination on the basis of qual- 
ity is further threatened by court-or- 
dered breaches of confidentiality. To 
prove discrimination in employment 
cases, especially those certified as 
class actions affecting large groups of 
people, defendants have often been 



given broad "discovery" rights to in- 
formation. They can sift through the 
private recommendations and evalua- 
tions in faculty files. This can lead not 
only to resentment and embarrassment 
for the individuals involved, but also to 
defamation and libel suits. President of 



The constant threat of 
lawsuits changes the 
campus in vital ways. 



the University of California David 
Saxon believes that few faculty will be 
willing to risk the candor necessary for 
the selection of top quality personnel if 
they know their opinions can be used 
against them. His university has been 
battling the Department of Labor and 
the State of California for the past two 
years over the confidentiality of uni- 
versity files. 

The trend is toward more legislation 
to bar confidential meetings and evalu- 
ations. State sunshine laws have begun 
to present boards of trustees with diffi- 
cult questions about what to discuss at 
meetings and how to deal with many 
sensitive issues. And such freedom-of- 
information laws as the Buckley 
Amendment, which gives students ac- 
cess to their own files, cause an array 
of administrative headaches. As Claire 
Guthrie, former counsel for Princeton 
and now a staff lawyer with the Ameri- 
can Council on Education, complains. 
"Every student who gets to see his 
files thinks he has the legal right to 
challenge a grade." 

The constant threat of lawsuits 
changes the campus in other vital, 
though less obvious, ways. When 
groups and individuals who once 
worked together view themselves as 
potential adversaries in court, the mu- 
tual trust and cooperation that are so 
crucial to student-teacher relationships 
and to community-wide decision-mak- 
ing break down. This is happening 
today on many campuses, educational 
leaders say, robbing the academic 
world of two of its greatest assets: 
spontaneity and common purpose. 

Collegiality is further jeopardized by 
presumptions that the law makes about 
college management. Most academic 
institutions are decentralized and func-

tion as confederations of academic de- 
partments which are essentially re- 
sponsible for their own decisions and 
conduct. Federal regulations, however, 
are written as though universities, like 
business corporations, are lightly man- 
aged from the top. And many courts, 
using the corporate model, have come 
to expect those in charge at universi- 
ties to have more power than they 
actually have. As one university presi- 
dent puts it: "For a college president to 
try to dictate affirmative action in a 
tenure decision would be a certain 
prescription for campus warfare." 

Leaders of private colleges and uni- 
versities, especially church-related 
schools, are concerned about homog- 
enization as the law progressively 
erases the distinctions between public 
and private higher education. Private 
institutions are not bound, for exam- 
ple, by such constitutional protections 
as due process and equal treatment, 
which protect individuals against gov- 
ernment action. But private institutions 
now get about one-fifth of their rev- 
enues from the federal government and 
are therefore being held to the same 
standards as public institutions. Thus, 
as one commentator has said, private 
institutions may be losing their greatest 
strength: "the possibility of doing 
something different than government 
can do, of creating an institution free to 
make choices government cannot— 
even seemingly arbitrary ones — with- 
out having to provide a justification 
that will be examined in court." 

Even the most optimistic observers 
see little likelihood that colleges and 
universities will be able to reverse the 
trend to more and more involvement 
with the law. Opinion differs on what, 
if anything, higher education can do to 
cope with the situation. Some, like the 
23-member Sloan Commission on Gov- 
ernment and Higher Education, urge 
an attack on one of the root causes: 
overlapping, undermanned, and un- 
coordinated government bureaucracies 
which elaborate and enforce govern- 
ment regulations. Congress drafted 
much of the social legislation of the 
past two decades with the voluntary 
resolution of complaints as its goal. 
But the agencies responsible for medi- 
ating disputes quickly stockpiled so 
heavy a backlog of pending cases that 



The task is to balance 

social justice 

with institutional integrity. 



complainants sought quicker action in 
the courts. As of I975, for example, 
there were 126.000 cases pending be- 
fore the EEOC, making the average 
wait from hearing to resolution in an 
EEOC suit from four to six years. 

Several federal statutes barring dis- 
crimination do not give injured parties 
the right to sue, but rather imply that 
government agencies should solve the 
problem by arbitration and. failing that, 
by cutting off federal funds. Different 
courts took different positions on the 
individual's right to sue until last May 
when the U.S. Supreme Court settled 
the question by ruling that Geraldine 
Cannon, a 39-year-old surgical nurse 
did indeed have the right to sue the 
University of Chicago and Northwest- 
ern medical schools. 

The Sloan Commission has recom- 
mended that all the anti-discrimination 
procedures be brought into one agency 



Page 8 SUSQUEHANNA ALUMNUS WINTER 1960 



within the new Department of Educa- 
tion. Commission vice chairman Carl 
Kaysen feels this would provide a 
"more flexible array of remedies and 
sanctions that should diminish the 
widespread resort to litigation." 

Others would attempt to allay the 
problem by making it more difficult 
and dangerous for those who bring 
suit, and shifting to them the burden ol 
proof and the costs of losing. Bank of 
Chicago President Richard L. Thomas 
believes "we ought to work toward a 
change in our laws to provide that 
those who file unworthy suits and lose 
them will be obliged to pay for the 
defendant's costs and legal fees." 

In fact, many federal anti-discrimina- 
tion laws, such as Title VII. do pro- 
vide such recourse, but courts have 
been hesitant to assess fees against 
losing plaintiffs. As one jurist notes, 
most discrimination complaints that 



make it to court have some merit; the 
individual truly believes— whether or 
not it can be proved — that he or she is 
.1 victim. 

Dallin H. Oaks, the president of 
Brigham Young University, wants to 
fight fire with fire. He thinks the most 
promising approach to the problem of 
growing court involvement in academe 
would be for colleges and universities 
to fight broad legal battles of principle 
based on the First Amendment. A 
former University of Chicago law pro- 
fessor, he thinks that the First Amend- 
ment protections of speech, press, and 
assembly can be logically extended to 
include a constitutional protection of 
schools, colleges, and universities "in 
their role of advocacy and practice as 
sources, teachers, and practitioners of 
values in our society." He notes that 
just 50 years ago. the law of free 
speech and free press in the United 



States was in an embryonic stage. It 
was strengthened and defined by court 
challenges. "Now there are threats to 
the freedom of educators and educa- 
tional institutions." says President 
Oaks. "And while we have legal theor- 
ies to meet them, those theories can 
only be developed into full-fledged pro- 
tections if we are willing to take posi- 
tions and carry them through with the 
expensive litigation necessary to the 
progressive development of the law." 

Until now. the most famous asser- 
tion of broad educational freedoms 
came from Supreme Court Justice Fe- 
lix Frankfurter in a 1957 court case 
testing the more narrow definition of 
academic freedom — a professor's right 
to hold and express unpopular opin- 
ions. Justice Frankfurter extended the 
concept to include what he described 
as "the four essential freedoms" of a 
university: "to determine for itself on 



academic grounds who may teach, 
what may be taught, how it shall be 
taught, and who may he admitted to 
study." 

Twenty-three years later, college at- 
torneys still quote the Frankfurter de- 
cision, but they and their institutions 
grow increasingly aware of the en- 
croachments on each of the four free- 
doms he defined. The prevailing social 
currents favor egalitarianism and 
strongly resist any unchecked author- 
ity — even if it comes in the name of so 
noble a goal as the search for truth and 
understanding. The difficult task lacing 
colleges and universities, then, is to 
find, within the law. a way to balance 
social justice and institutional integrity: 
to remain free to perform their mission 
for all of society, while being fair to 
each segment of society. 



PLANNED GIVING 



by CARL M. MOYER '63 



We know that death and taxes are two certainties of life. 
But dying can potentially be the more costly — in terms of not 
having your worldly possessions go where you wish and 
where you feel they will do the most good. 

One of our most neglected, yet essential personal respon- 
sibilities is planning for the eventuality of death. Few of us 
are willing to think about it, yet it is a subject necessary for 
all of us to confront, regardless of age. We owe it to our loved 
ones and to our peace of mind. 

An estate plan is a must — a definite plan, usually set forth 
in a will and one or more trust agreements, for the ad- 
ministration and disposition of one's property at the time of 
death. 

Estate planning consists of knowing what you own and 
owe, providing for your own support as long as you live, and 
planning for the orderly transfer of your belongings at your 
death, in accordance with your wishes. 

To accomplish this, you will probably find it both 
necessary and helpful to engage an attorney and/or trust of- 
ficer. Many basic goals of an estate plan can be accomplished 
by writing a will — a legal document which tells others how 
you want your property distributed after you are gone. 

You may say, "But I'm only 26," or "I don't own anything 
of worth," or "My wife and 1 own all our property jointly," 
or "My children are grown." 

Consider for a moment: 

1. You live in Pennsylvania, you graduated from Sus- 
quehanna in 1975. and you are single. If you die tomorrow, 
without a will, all of your estate will be distributed to your 
parents. Supposing your parents are affluent, and you really 
want your estate to go to a brother you feel needs financial 
help. This will not occur unless you have your Intentions out- 
lined in a will. 

2. Many married couples feel that joint ownership of 
property negates the need for a will. Joint ownership does 
mean that property automatically is owned by the survivor. 
However, substituting joint ownership for a will can be ex- 
tremely dangerous and expensive. For example, if your 
spouse dies first, or you are both killed in a common acci- 
dent, your property will be passed on under your state's in- 
heritance (estate) laws and not necessarily in the manner you 
might wish. As a surviving widow or widower without a will, 
your estate would be taken entirely by the state 
(Pennsylvania) if you left no heirs closer than second cousins. 

3. If your children are grown, but one child is in far greater 
financial need than another, the only way to allocate more 
from your estate to this less fortunate child is through a will. 

4. You may want an heirloom piece of furniture passed on 
to a certain family member. Without a will it might be sold as 
part of a court-appointed ruling to liquidate your estate. 

Think about it. You have worked hard to earn money and 
possessions, whether you are 26 or 76. You have saved 
money, perhaps put money into some forms of investments 
and already paid taxes on that money. Now, it could very 
easily happen that your estate would pay additional taxes on 
this same property at the time of your death Perhaps you are 
unwilling to accept this. If so, to legally minimize any estate 
(inheritance) tax burden and perhaps leave more for your 



heirs, you will need the help of a professional — an attorney 
who is familiar with the tax laws — and, to carry out your will, 
you need a will. 

A will is the cornerstone of a good estate plan. I urge you 
to consult legal counsel in drafting and writing a will. You 
may find that, with professional help, you can economically 
plan for the future well-being of your loved ones and, at the 
same time, provide for the future of your charitable interests 
such as church or college. In fact, you may find it helps con- 
serve your estate by providing for a charitable bequest. 
Charitable bequests, like gifts during a lifetime, are deducti- 
ble and often free of taxes. 

Of course, Susquehanna would welcome being included in 
your estate plan. To move ahead and continue to improve its 
program, the University will need more and more financial 
support from alumni and friends. One method used by hun- 
dreds of benefactors is to provide for Susquehanna by mak- 
ing a bequest. 

Bequests can take many forms and should be carefully 
planned. A bequest can stipulate that a certain percentage of 
your estate will go to Susquehanna. Or, a stated dollar 
amount or specific property can be bequeathed. 

You also can instruct the University how you want your 
gift used. For example, you can direct that the funds be used 
for a specific purpose, such as endowment to provide for 
scholarships or library books. In numerous cases, persons 
have arranged for the name of a loved one or themselves to be 
associated with Susquehanna in perpetuity through a special 
gift in their memory. As an alternative, you might wish to 
have your bequest used for the current operating needs of 
Susquehanna. 

The importance of bequests to Susquehanna cannot be 
over-emphasized. Throughout the years men and women of 
varied backgrounds and means have reaffirmed their faith in 
the mission of Susquehanna by providing for the University's 
future through the use of bequests. Today the names of these 
persons live on at Susquehanna as a symbol of this faith. 

A sampling of these names is listed to indicate that gifts 
through wills come from persons of all levels and means. Sus- 
quehanna has been the recipient of bequests ranging from 
$100 to $500,000, and each has played a significant role in 
the advancement of the University. The purposes of these 
gifts are varied, but each benefactor had a devotion to Sus- 
quehanna and to the importance of supporting the future of 
private higher education. • 

Philip C. Bossart, professor of psychology at Sus- 
quehanna, provided $1000 in his will for use by the Univer- 
sity. 

I.N. Catherman '91 bequeathed the sum of $26,000 to Sus- 
quehanna University for unrestricted purposes. 

Helen G. Fisher '13 left $10,000 through a bequest in her 
will. 

Miller Gerhardt '30 left a bequest of nearly $150,000 for 
the University to use to strengthen its educational program. 

Robert W. Hartman '25 bequeathed $53,000 to the Un- 
iversity for whatever purpose the Board of Directors deemed 
appropriate. 

The John A. Hoober Memorial Scholarship was endowed 



with the sum of $20,000 by the will of his wife, Sarah A.K. 
Hoober. 

E. Larson "Larry" Sidola '69 gave $100 through a bequest 
in his will. Books were purchased for the library in his 
memory. 

Hazel E. Kuhns, a member of the Susquehanna University 
Women's Auxiliary, left one-third of her estate to Sus- 
quehanna through a simple bequest arrangement. 

Katharine M. Reed, a friend of the University, left 65 per- 
cent of the remainder of her estate to Susquehanna. Her gift 
totaled approximately $400,000. 

George A. Rhoads, a local businessman, left the residue of 
his estate, or over $150,000, to the University for the es- 
tablishment of a scholarship fund for pre-theological stu- 
dents. 

I hope you have found this column of interest and value. 
No one enjoys thinking about death. But remember, it can 
and will happen to you. For help in planning your will, we are 
happy to be able to provide a booklet entitled "Techniques 
For Planning A Successful Will" as well as a guide entitled 
"What You Should Know When Making Your Will." Please 
use our coupon to request your copy or copies. 

In future issues of Susquehanna Alumnus, we hope to 
provide you with insights into many different areas of 
planned giving. For example, we expect to discuss such 
areas as trusts, estate (inheritance) tax problems, and uses 
of life insurance. If you have any questions about these 
areas now, or interest in talking with us about your plans 
to help Susquehanna financially, please feel free to call 
(717) 374-0101 or write me at the Office of Development. 

I hope you will take a minute of your time to let me know 
your impressions of this first article. They would certainly be 
helpful in making future subjects as worthwhile as possible. 
Thanks!

Dr LEON C. CHESLEY 79 

was honored in January 
by the Downstate Medical 
Center, SUNY at Brooklyn, 
with sponsorship of an Inter- 
national Symposium on Hyper- 
tensive Disorders in Pregnancy. 
The two-day program listed as 
speakers six of the world's 
leading authorities on the sub- 
ject. Professor emeritus of 
obstetrics and gynecology at 
Downstate, Chesley is the 
author of Hypertensive Disor- I 
ders in Pregnancy, published in 
1978 and lauded as a "welcome," "unique," 
and "remarkable" book by such prestigious 
publications as Journal of the American 
Medical Association, The Annals of Internal 
Medicine, and British Medical Journal. 

Last September, the Journal of Reproduc- 
tive Medicine published a Festschrift edition 
paying tribute to Chesley's 45 years of 
research in the toxemias of pregnancy and 
announcing his appointment as professor 
emeritus — a title, it pointed out, which does 
not imply retirement, since "Leon continues 
to lecture, teach, and, more important, make 
those imaginative and original contributions 
that have made him the dean of high blood 




pressure in pregnancy investigators for at 
least four decades." 

"Ches," as he was known at Susquehanna, 
earned his Ph.D. from Duke University, was 
assistant biophysicist at Memorial Hospital 
in New York and chief chemist at Margaret 
Hague Maternity Hospital in Jersey City 
before joining the faculty at Downstate in 
1953. A member or fellow of numerous 
professional societies, he is a past president 
of the Society for Gynecologic Investigation 
and a Diplomale of the American Board of 
Clinical Chemistry. He is the author or co- 
author of more than 1 50 published works in 
medical and scientific journals.

DALE ORRIS 75 has had his share of ex- 
citement. The trumpet player spent a year 
and a half touring the world with the Glenn 
Miller Orchestra and put in a three-month 
stint on the road with the Buddy Rich Band. 

But while he's thankful to have had those 
opportunities to gain valuable professional 
experience, Dale says the hectic life of the 
traveling musician isn't for him. The Mid- 
dleburg, Pa., native much prefers his current 
situation, which allows him a little time for 
ocean fishing, an occasional round of golf 
where courses are open year-round, and his 
own bed to sleep in every night. 

Since last August Dale has been living two 
blocks from the sea in Garden City Beach, 
near Myrtle Beach, S.C. While he ap- 
preciates being able to cast his line off the 
nearby pier, Dale is also keeping up a busy 
work schedule. He plays in a local resort 
band, does free-lance arranging and 
recording work, and teaches music to school 
children on the Myrtle Beach Air Force 
Base. He's especially happy to be getting 
leaching experience, since he hopes someday 
to get a college faculty position and continue 
performing, recording, and arranging on the 
side. 

He got- his start in music under the 
tutelage of his father. Ken Orris '53, in- 
strumental music supervisor and director of 
bands for the Middleburg joint school dis- 
trict. Dale received his B.Mus. majoring in 
music education at Susquehanna. He was 
awarded a full-tuition graduate scholarship 
by the College Conservatory of Music at the 
University of Cincinnati, where he earned 



SU vignette 

the M.Mus. 

His home between September 1976 and 
March 1978 was a succession of bus rides 
and hotel rooms shared with other members 
of the Glenn Miller Orchestra. Their 
schedule of one-night appearances had them 
spending all night on the bus every other 
night, with a day off every two weeks. Dale 
got a break at Christmas and then spent the 
next 50 weeks straight with the group. Play- 
ing in places ranging from club lodges and 
high school gyms to Berlin Philharmonic 
Hall, the orchestra toured Europe, Japan, 
Venezuela, and Canada, as well as the U.S. 

"The pace wears you down physically, and 
most guys stay with the group only six 
months at a time," Dale says. "I rested up 
during the summer," he adds. During that 
"rest" period, however, he was not entirely 
inactive. While staying with his parents in 
Middleburg, Dale did some jobs in the area 
including appearing as featured soloist with 
the SU Jazz Ensemble. 

Then the call came from Buddy Rich, and 
Dale was on tour again, this time for only 
three months. Working with Rich was 
strenuous because it's a "high energy band," 
according to Dale. "Buddy plays everything 
loud and fast," he says. 

Last summer Dale was back in Mid- 
dleburg, where he won the First Flight title in 
the Shade Mountain Golf Club Cham- 
pionship with rounds of 83 and 79. He won't 
return to defend his title this summer. 
There's a song line that applies to Dale, at 
least for the time being: "nothin could be 
fina than to be in Carolina."

THAT'S HOW IT WAS 

by EMMETT FREDERICK 

Dr. Charles Thomas Aikens, president of Susquehanna in the early '20s, was a 
devout man and a preacher much in demand. It follows that he gave much thought 
to the chapel services he conducted in Gustavus Adolphus Hall and which the entire 
student body was expected to attend. 

It was not until 1924 that the addition was built on to Seibert Hall providing 
for that 500-seat chapel (which served until the present Weber Chapel Auditorium 
was completed in 1966). 

Collegians were not the only ones Prexy welcomed to chapel. Some town 
youngsters not quite old enough to attend public school were led to services by stu- 
dents. They were seated facing the student body, legs dangling over the edge of the 
low platform supporting the lectern. There they were expected to remain. Many stu- 
dents made a fuss over the children. That was the way it was in that time. 

In conducting services, Dr. Aikens may have stopped short of preaching fire 
and brimstone, but his words were intended to generate at least a little smoke. His 
messages were so obviously sincere it was as if he sought to bring individual 
salvation — on the spot — to each of his hearers. 

Some of the boys took steps to relieve the solemnity. A large beam spanned the 
chapel ceiling behind the lectern. A hole was drilled through the ceiling on each side 
of the lectern. A thin rope was put through each hole and a whiskey bottle, empty 
but identifiable by the label, tied to each end. The bottles could be drawn up so they 
were virtually concealed behind the beam. 

But while the president was sermonizing, one student would be busy with the 
ropes on the floor overhead. First, he'd dangle one bottle in sight of the assembly, 
then pull it up and lower the other. He'd repeat the process several times before ty- 
ing them out of sight and taking his seat in chapel — thus not absent but merely late. 
Fear of discovery led to discontinuing this trick after a few days. 

The titters that ran through the student body both puzzled and worried Dr. 
Aikens, a teetotaler, who never realized how "fluid" his chapel services were.

SU Spoils 



by PETER SILVESTRI 

The last weekend in February was a great time for Sus- 
quehanna sports fans. Not only did we join with the rest of 
the nation in savoring the U.S. Olympic hockey triumph, but 
wc also enjoyed our own "miracle"— a fourth place finish in 
ihe Middle Atlantic Conference Wrestling Championships 
by a Crusader squad that was expected to place no higher 
than ninth or tenth among the 20 teams entered. 

For the first time in the 42-year history of the event, Sus- 
quehanna hosted the MAC wrestling tournament. Four-year 
old O.W. Houts Gymnasium provided an excellent site for 
Ihe well-attended affair, involving nearly 200 wrestlers in two 
days of action. The University's athletic prestige benefited 
not only from our wrestlers' performances on the mats, but

from the fine job done by Coach Charlie Kunes and his army 
of volunteers in running the complicated tourney without a 
hitch. 

The home-mat advantage paid off for the Orange and 
Maroon, who were ninth in last year's MAC meet and had 
only a 5-7 dual record this winter. "I think wrestling in our 
own gym really helped us," says Kunes. "not so much 
because of the familiar surroundings, but mainly because of 
the tremendous support we received from our fans." A 
sizeable number of SU students bore the unaccustomed bur- 
den of paying one dollar admission in order to cheer on their 
classmates. 

Fan support was especially evident during Saturday 
night's finals. When Joel Tokarz '80 (Ossining, N.Y.) scored 
a takedown with 1: 10 left to go ahead of defending champ 
Tim Spruill of Lycoming, the sustained cheering, clapping, 
and foot-stomping by Susquehanna rooters raised decibels to 
a level that exceeded even the spontaneous yelling elicited by 
Friday evening's surprise P. A. announcement that the 
American hockey team had defeated the Soviets. 

With 35 seconds left, Tokarz was reversed by Spruill, who 
went on to take an 8-6 decision. But Tokarz's runner-up 
finish was the best by a Crusader grappler in the MAC tour- 
ney since Bill Bechtel '71 placed second at 126 pounds in 
1970. It was a great climax to an otherwise disappointing 
season in which Tokarz managed only a 7-5 dual mark. A 
four-year performer, Tokarz eclipsed Bechtel's school 
records for career wins with a 53-25 overall mark and for 
MAC tourney points in a season (!5'/2) and career (30). 
Ken Tashjy '83 (Pequannock, N.J.), 1 1-1 in dual meets,

lost only to eventual champion Warren Robertson of 
Delaware Valley enroute to a third place MAC showing. The 
Crusader cause received unexpected boosts from Dave Heit- 
man '82 (Upper Saddle River, N.J.), a late replacement at 
142, and Rick Evans '81 (Mechanicsburg, Pa.), 1 50-pounder 
who hadn't wrestled in over a month because of injury. Each 
captured fourth place in his class. 

Bert Szostak '81 (Colonia, N.J.), 190 champ at the pre- 
season Lebanon Valley Tournament and 1 1 - 1 in dual meets, 
drew tough assignments in the MAC event. He lost to the top 
two seeded wrestlers and finished fifth. 



WINTER 1980 SUS QUEHANNA ALUMNUS Page 13 

The team's fourth place MAC finish was Susque- 
hanna's best since 1971. It may be more than mere coin- 
cidence that this was the first time in nine years that the SU 
effort included Whitney Gay '71, then heavyweight wrestler, 
now an assistant director -of admissions and assistant wres- 
tling coach. Tokarz and Tashjy became the first Orange and 
Maroon wrestlers to qualify for the NCAA Division III 
national tournament, instituted in 1974. At the Coast Guard 
Academy in New London, Conn., Tashjy was 1-1 and 
Tokarz 0-1. 

The Crusader men's basketball team started no one taller 
than 6-4. and. as Coach Don Harnum says, "we weren't very 
quick either.'' However, the SU five was more competitive 
than its 9-15 record might indicate. With no seniors on the 
rosier, the Orange and Maroon defeated two top-notch 
teams in Dickinson and Western Maryland, almost upset 
Albright and Elizabethtown on the road, and were outclassed 
only twice, by Allegheny and Scranton. 

Rod Brooks '81 (Philadelphia) was named to the first team 
of the MA C Northern Division all-star squad, the only junior 
to earn that honor this year. Scoring 407 points for an 
average of 1 7 per game this winter. Brooks moved into tenth 
place on the all-time SU scoring list with a career total of 
1093. 

Susquehanna swimmers made some waves this winter in 
their first season of official intercollegiate competition. The 
neophyte natators of Coach Ged Schweikert compiled a 4-5 
record in men's meets and went 2-2 in women's competition. 

At the MAC championships the SU women took seventh 
and the Crusader men were tenth for an overall eighth-place 
finish among 13 teams. Top individual place winner was 
Bette Funkhouser '83 (Lebanon, N.J.), second in the wom- 
en's 100-yd. backstroke. 

The women's basketball team failed to put it all together 
under Joyce Nolen, third coach in three years. But the 
Crusaders refused to give up. and did manage to win their 
final game after 12 straight setbacks. Top player was Sue 
Grausam '81 (Weslfield. N.J.). Tom Diehl. former 
Shikellamy High (Sunbury. Pa.) mentor and assistant SU 
men's hoop coach this winter, has been named new women's 
coach at Susquehanna. 

A new SU soccer coach has been appointed. He's Jim 
Aurand, who compiled an 1 1 -year record of 1 44-37-8 at Mid- 
dleburg (Pa.) High School, winning two league and two dis- 
trict titles and the state championship in 1974. 

Our last column may have left the impression that Neil 
Potter quit because of his 1979 team's disappointing record. 
This is unfair to Dr. Potter, who carried the SU soccer 
program through both ups and downs for the past 13 years. 
He had decided in September to "retire" from coaching 
because the "butterflies" in his stomach on the day of each 
game had become too much of a distraction from his faculty 
responsibilities in the Chemistry Department. 



As this is written. Crusader athletes are about to embark 
on a spring campaign which promises to be highly successful. 
One new coach is on board— Scot Dapp in baseball. He's ex- 
pecting a winning season, and a similar forecast can be made 
for every sport with the possible exception of men's tennis. 
The track team should be greatly improved, the golf and 
Softball squads should continue their recent strong showings, 
and the women's tennis team is in good shape to defend its 
1979 Middle Atlantic Conference Championship.

SPRING 1980 



The 1980 John C. Horn Distinguished Service Lecture . . . 

REACHING FOR MORE THAN MOONLIT STONE 



Dr. John C. Horn, at right, retired as chairman 
of the Susquehanna University Board of 
Directors in 1978, after 16 years in that 
office and 28 years as a member of the Board. 
In recognition of his outstanding leadership 
and accomplishments during the period of the 
University's extraordinary growth, the Directors 
established the John C. Horn Distinguished 
Service Lectureship. This, the first Horn 
Lecture, was delivered on May 4, 1980. 



by OTTO REIMHERR 

It is a privilege to be invited to be the 1980 lecturer in 
honor of John Chisholm Horn for his distinguished service as 
a member and as chairman of the Board of Directors at Sus- 
quehanna University. 

Let me begin with a story. During the 1930s when two of 
the "superpowers" of Eastern football were Susquehanna 
University and the City College of New York, there was a 
student at the City College named Bernard Malamud. After 
graduation he became a noted short story writer and novelist. 
One of his short stories, sometimes criticized but often 
anthologized, is called "The Lady of the Lake." 




The story concerns a young man, Henry Levin, a 
floorwalker in the book department at Macy's, who inherits 
some money and decides to go to Europe in search of 
romance. 

In Paris, he changes his name from Levin to Freeman, for 
he is tired of the past and of the limitations it has imposed on 
him. He seems to find the freedom, adventure, and even love 
he seeks in Stresa on the shores of Lake Maggiore. The lake 
with the background of the distant Alps and the nearer view 
of four islands within it, is so beautiful it almost makes him 
cry. 



Dr. Richard Kamber Introduces the Horn Lecturer 



As head of the Department of Religion and Philosophy, I 
have been asked to introduce this evening's speaker, Dr. Otto 
Reimherr, Professor of Philosophy and Religion at Sus- 
quehanna University and the first recipient of the John C. 
Horn Distinguished Service Lectureship. The John Horn 
Lectureship was established last spring, at the request of 
President Jonathan Messerli, to honor Dr. Horn's dis- 
tinguished service and accomplishments during his sixteen 
years as Chairman of the University's Board of Directors. 
This award is to be given annually to a full-time faculty mem- 
ber who has an outstanding record of scholarly endeavor and 
conscientious service to the University. It is, I think, 
altogether fitting that the first recipient of the award be a 
faculty-scholar who has given twenty-one years of dedicated 
service to Susquehanna. 

The most extraordinary feature of Otto Reimherr's 
scholarship is the manner in which he conducts it. Though 
Otto is eager to attribute expertise to others, he invariably 
denies it to himself. A stranger to the romantic agonies of 
academic prima donnas, Otto pursues his scholarly-interests 
with the unfeigned humility of a perennial student. The 
various papers, articles and reviews that Otto has written are 
essentially reports on the course of his studies. As Professor 
of Philosophy and Religion, Otto's academic obligations 
span two colossal fields of humanistic thought. To attain 
mastery in just one of these fields is a remarkable feat, the 
work of a lifetime. But Otto makes no claim to mastery. His 
goal is to learn what he can, and to share that learning with 
others. Undaunted by cultural disparities, Otto has been 
known to teach Aristotle and Jesus, back-to-back, and to of- 
fer a course titled The New York Timesand The Bible. In the 
case of the latter course. Otto discovered that what troubled 
his students was not cultural disparity, but their lack of ac- 
quaintance with either publication. 



Senior professors, like old ministers, are often dis- 
tinguished by their consummate predictability. Yet despite 
his standing in both professions, Otto Reimherr is full of sur- 
prises. One never knows what new topic, project, or official 
responsibility he is going to undertake next. Over the past 
three years alone. Otto has presented papers dealing with 
Latin Church Fathers, Nineteenth Century Mormonism, 
and Twentieth Century Judaism. 

Otto Reimherr has a secret, the external sign of which is 
his consistently cheerful demeanor. The ancient greek 
cosmologist Democritus was known to antiquity as "the 
laughing philosopher." Otto is known to us as "the smiling 
theologian." The precise meaning of that smile is difficult to 
decipher, but I suspect that it betokens two things: first, an 
affectionate tolerance for all that is human; and, second, the 
simple fact that Otto likes what he is doing. 

Not only is Otto Reimherr studious and cheerful, he is also 
famous. After many years of service as a pastor and teacher, 
as a member of the Board of Directors of the Lutheran 
Theological Seminary [Gettysburg], as Chairman of S.U.'s 
Department of Religion and Philosophy, as an editor of 
Susquehanna University Studies, and as director of the In- 
stitute forStudies in Parish Ministry, Otto has come to know 
and be known by a great many people. There is scarcely a 
corner of Central Pennsylvania where one cannot find an old 
friend of Otto's. Several years ago I happened to be sitting in 
my father-in-law's office in Yonkers, New York. One of the 
secretaries in the office asked me where I was teaching. And I 
replied, "Susquehanna University," thinking that she had 
probably never heard of the school. "Susquehanna," she said 
with a smile of recognition, "then I'm sure you know Otto 
Reimherr." 

Ladies and gentlemen, it is a privilege to present to you my 
well-known friend and colleague. Dr. Otto Reimherr. 



Love beckons when he visits Isola del Dongo with a group 
of tourists, and on straying from the group and the irritable 
guide, he meets the lady of the lake, whom he takes to be an 
Italian countess. She tells him her name is Isabella del 
Dongo. To his surprise, she asks him if he is Jewish. Without 
batting an eye, Henry replies, "No." 

They are attracted to each other and Freeman arranges 
further meetings. Although his background is not equal to 
Isabella's, he dreams of marrying her and taking her to 
America. 

At the end of one of the days they have together, Isabella 
tells him, "My name is not Isabella del Dongo, but Isabella 
della Seta. My father, my brother, and I are caretakers of the 
palace and the gardens." 

When Henry first hears this news he is crushed. Obviously, 
each has been lying to the other. Finally he comes to the con- 
clusion that this revelation makes no difference to him. So he 
runs down to the dock as twilight is descending and sets out 
for the island where she lives, in a boat rowed, strangely, by 
the caretaker father. It is late in the day and the moon is just 
coming up. 

Henry arrives at the island and is met by Isabella, whose 
first word to him is, "Goodbye." 

"Goodbye?" puzzles Henry. "I have come to marry you!" 
Isabella looks at him with moist eyes and asks, "Are you a 
Jew?" He answers immediately, "How many nos make a 
never? Why should I lie? Why do you persist with such 
foolish questions?" 

Then come the climactic lines of the story. "Because I 
wished you were. I cannot marry you." With that she opens 
her bodice and there he sees on her body tatooed numbers . . . 
Buchenwald. "We are Jews. My past is meaningful to me. I 
treasure what I suffered for." 

"Jews, you?" stammers Henry. "O God, why did you keep 
this from me? Isabella, listen, I am, I am." He gropes for her 
but she steps among the statues, and still calling her name, 
Henry embraces only moonlit stone. 

I. TRADITION 

One cannot speak of John Horn without thinking of a 
family in whose life the past has been meaningful. This 
family has had a great tradition, and also its share of suffer- 
ing. For a few moments I would like to recall some phases of 
the life of that family in relationship to American higher 
education. Our limited time allows speaking of only four 
members of John's family who have achieved distinction. 
There are many others of whom much could be said. 

John Horn's grandfather was Henry Eyster Jacobs, 
probably the dominant intellectual among late 1 9th century 
and early 20th century Lutherans in the eastern United 
States. Born in 1844 in Gettysburg, his father was Michael 
Jacobs, professor of mathematics and natural science at Get- 
tysburg College. 

After graduation from the college and the seminary at 
Gettysburg, Henry was a teacher of Latin, Greek, and 
history. He studied particularly the 17th century teachers of 
theology, and translated theological works, including the 
Book of Concord. His edition of the Book of Concord, the 
basic theological text in the Lutheran Church, done in the 
1880s, was so thorough that it was supplanted only in 1959 — 
almost 80 years later — by a team of translators. As a 
professor at the Philadelphia Seminary he taught until his 
86th year. In 1890 he published The Lutheran Movement in 
England, and in 1893 the major 19th century history of the 
Lutheran Church in the "American Church History" series. 

According to Theodore Tappert in his History of the 
Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia 1864-1964, 
Jacobs took a quiet but active part in the life of the church. 
He participated in a series of meetings between 1877 and

A New Leader Takes Office 

Over Alumni Weekend 1980 (see photo coverage beginning on page 5) there was a 
change in leadership of the general Alumni Association. Elected as president was Robert L 
Hackenberg '56, at left, above, with the outgoing president, William C. Davenport '53. 

Bob Hackenberg takes the reins with a solid background of experience in handling a 
variety of chores for Susquehanna, including service as chairman of Alumni Weekend and 
vice president of the Association. A resident of Plainfield, N.J., he is general manager of 
Monteverdi, a division of Lloyds Electronics in Edison. As president, he has heavy respon- 
sibilities smd will be counting on all alumni to help as the University moves further into the 
'80s and celebrates its 125th anniversary. There will be work for all to do. 

Meanwhile, Bill Davenport has moved on and been elected an alumni representative on 
the University's Board of Directors — which, of course, also has its work cut out for it. Bill 
served the alumni as president for three years and he gave unstintingly of his time and talents 
to the causes of Alma Mater. We are all grateful to him and to his lovely wife, the former 
Margaret Henderson '54. Bill and Peg live in Camp Hill, Pa, and Bill is owner of the Hoopy 
Insurance Agency in Lemoyne. 

Susquehanna has not published an alumni directory since 1963. Thus, the mailing all 
alumni received concerning our new one, to appear early in 1981, is most important. It's also 
important to remember that this edition is being published at no cost (except for question- 
naires and their postage) to the University. Responses are pouring in at a good rate and we're 
striving for completeness and accuracy. If you haven't returned your questionnaire, how 
about sending it along so we don't have to send you a follow-up in September? 

On another subject, and just for the record: Some folks have been asking about the for- 
mat of Susquehanna Alumnus. We did get some mail (but not a great deal) when the first 
tabloid appeared— some alumni preferring a magazine and some a tab. Many of the 
thoughtful, however, seem to agree that this is a time to economize, if possible, as long as we 
do it with taste. For now— for 1980-81— we are budgeted for a tabloid. We'll do our best to 
keep it looking good.

Toward a Concordance 
of Edgar Allan Poe 



For the past two years, a protect has been underway at 
Susquehanna Involving production ot a concordance — an 
alphabetic index ot words with the context In which they appear in 
the text— ol the complete works ot Edgar Allan Poe. Concordances, 
which can be valuable aids to literary scholars, have been complied 
tor other authors, but not tor Poe. Although a simple concept, the 
undertaking Involves many hours ot painstaking work, even in 
today's computer age. What lollows is a tlrst-person eccount by one 
ot those who have worked on the project: Deborah M. Bernhisel '78, 
an English and Latin major who is currently a communication arts 
teacher tor the Shikellamy School District In Sunbury.

by DEBORAH BERNHISEL 



"Quoth the Raven, 'Nevermore' " was a 
familiar enough quotation to me as an un- 
dergraduate at Susquehanna. No self- 
respecting English major would fail to 
recognize this as a quotation from Edgar 
Allan Poe's famous poem "The Raven." 
Yet, since those undergraduate days^ this 
line and thousands of others by the same 
author have taken on a new dimension for 
me. 

My renewed interest in the 19th century 
poet and storyteller came as a result of the 
1978 Modern 'Language Association Con- 
vention in New York City. At a session spon- 
sored by the Poe Studies Association, a 
paper was presented which discussed re- 
search possibilities involving Poe and his 
works, one of which was to produce a com- 
plete concordance of his prose and poetry. 
Dr. Elizabeth Wiley, professor of English at 
Susquehanna, heard the lecture, was struck 
by the suggestion, and returned to campus 
brimming with enthusiasm for the task. 

Her enthusiasm was contagious and, 
within a short while. Dr. Wiley had enlisted 
support on campus, including that of Dr. 
Donald Housley, director of faculty develop- 
ment, and Dr. Wallace Growney, director of 
academic services in Susquehanna's Com- 
puter Center. Dr. Wiley presented a written 
proposal to the University for a Summer 
Research Grant,-and received funding to in- 
vestigate the feasibility of compiling a Poe 
concordance. 

The actual physical labor began in the 
spring of 1979. In preparation for a concen- 
trated effort in programming and compila- 
tion during the summer, Dr. Wiley, with the 
help of Barbara Bryan '79, began surveying 
the material at hand, namely the Poe short 
stories found in The Belknap Press Edition 
of the Collected Works of Edgar Allan Poe, 
as edited by Thomas Olive Mabbott. This 
particular edition and its sister volumes were 
to serve as the basis for the concordance, and 
from its pages Barb and Dr. Wiley needed to 
calculate the logical and grammatical length 
of Poe's phrases, so they could be fed into the 
SU computer, with the extraneous words to 
be excluded from the final listing. 

With summer came my involvement with 
the project, as clerk, typist, and proofreader. 
The summer's goal was to produce a small 
sample of the computer-compiled Poe con- 
cordance, and my job initially was to supply 
the computer with the necessary raw 
material. At first, we decided to include 17 
stories, the number in the Poe collection 
entitled The Folio Club. These stories were 
to be typed into the computer line by line in 
an exact reproduction of the page as printed 
in Mabbott's edition, and to be proofread 
twice to ensure accuracy. This material was 
then to be run through a program designed to 
sort through the stories word by word, 
eliminate unnecessary words (based on the 
list compiled in the spring), and list the 
remaining words alphabetically along with 
the lines in which they appeared. The 



product of this collation would then be edited 
into phrases and printed for distribution to 
prospective supporters. 

Stage one, typing and proofreading, was 
rather simple, although extremely time- 
consuming. In fact, by the end of the 1 Ith 
story, I had used up approximately 100 
hours of computer time. The work was 
tedious. It was necessary to type a volume 
number, page number, and line number for 
each line of the text, and the computer 
system required exact spacing of the typed 
characters. Proofreading was no easier since 
the computer only printed out what it had 
previously received, typing errors included. 
The text needed to be read through several 
times, and even then errors managed to slip 
by. 

After hours and hours of typing, reading, 
and more typing, the first compilation was 
run. During the typing-proofreading stage of 
work. Dr. Growney and student assistant 
David Lynch '80 wrote a program which 
would allow the computer to search out each 
word, list it separately (along with its line of 
text, volume, page, and line number), 
eliminate the extraneous words, combine 
like words into single listings, tally the num- 
ber of times each word appeared, and then 
alphabetize the final product. After several 
trials with individual stories, the program 
was run on the 1 1 stories already in the com- 
puter's data base. 

The result was both exhilarating and 
depressing. The computer run proved suc- 
cessful, completing in 20 minutes a task 
which would have demanded weeks of nor- 
mal human labor. The only drawback was 
that the printed result was a pile of computer 
printout nearly three inches thick, all of 
which needed to be carefully checked against 
the text to ensure its accuracy, especially in 
regard to the reliability of the program itself. 

Proofreading the master printout proved 
to be as tedious and time-consuming as it ap- 
peared, but the work had its recompense 
Now that we were dealing with compiled 
material, we were able to make observations 
about the feasibility of the concordance and, 
even more interesting, observations about 
Poe's word choice. The text was no longer a 
solidified unit. We were dealing with in- 
dividual words and the phrases in which they 
appeared. At a glance, we could tell how of- 
ten a word was used in a given story or how 
often a word was used in the 1 1 stories. The 
words were being dealt with as entities in 
themselves rather than as units in an overall 
literary structure. 

Possible patterns in language and word 
choice began to become noticeable during 
these sessions. Poe's vocabulary began to ap- 
pear as rather extensive. Often a particular 
word would appear only once or twice in the 
1 1 stories. Spelling inconsistencies were also 
noticeable, although the reason for the spell- 
ing shift could not be determined through the 
printout. Negative image words occurred

1904 which sought to reconcile theological differences be- 
tween Lutheran groups in the United States. His work 
culminated in the formation of the United Lutheran Church 
in America in 1918. 

He was a man of vast learning, said Tapperl, who devoted 
the whole of his time to study and teaching. In addition to his 
books he wrote several hundred articles for journals and en- 
cyclopedias. 

A second remarkable person in John's life was his father. 
William Melchior Horn, born in 1882 at Charleston, South 
Carolina. He married Marguerite Jacobs, daughter of Henry 
Eyster Jacobs. In 1917 William Horn left an important con- 
gregation in New York City, Advent Lutheran Church on 
Broadway, to become a pastor to students at Cornell Univer- 
sity. 

While John's father was in New York he was concerned 
for the poor, serving as president of the Inner Mission 
Society so effectively that it led to expansion of the work 
from Manhattan into the Bronx and Brooklyn. He also was 
elected president of the New York and New England Synod, 
and while serving in that office he helped to bring unity 
among Lutherans in the northeast region of the country. 

This important man in the church's life went to Ithaca, 
New York, and for his first service on the Cornell campus 
only 19 were present. Through his work from 1917 to 1932 
there were eventually 400 present at the services of the church 
each Sunday. 

During his early days of.working in Ithaca, calamity after 
calamity struck the family. The parsonage burned. The eight 
children in the family had whooping cough and measles. His 
wife Marguerite and the children were stricken with in- 
fluenza during the epidemic. Skunks lived under a section of 
the rear of their house, atacked the children, and infected the 
water system. 

In 1925 a building was completed on the edge of the Cor- 
nel! campus. Many gave gifts, but particularly Reformation 
Lutheran Church in Rochester, whose recent pastor, Dr. 
Walter Freed, is a member of our Susquehanna Board. One 
of Pastor Horn's projects was a 50 watt radio station, 
operating out of a closet, which broadcast the services of the 
church as well as discussions of the faith. Two nuns who were 
teachers in the Ithaca community said they always attended 
early mass so they would be home in time to hear Dr. Horn's 
sermons. 

At the age of 49 William Horn suffered a stroke while 
preaching. This cerebral accident happened on March 13, 
1932, and he passed away the following fall. It is clear that he 
was one of the pioneers in the way that the churches have 
ministered to students at major universities. 

A third remarkable person related to John Horn was his 
uncle, Charles Michael Jacobs, graduate of the University of 
Pennsylvania and the Philadelphia Seminary, who studied 
also at the U niversity of Leipzig. A fter serving as a pastor for 
twelve years he became a professor of church history at the 
Philadelphia Seminary. 

Charles Jacobs had a different approach from that of his 
father. He had come under the influence of a movement 
known as the Luther Renaissance — a movement which 
engaged the attention of historians and theologians in Ger- 
many, Sweden, England, and the United States. With 
Preserved Smith, the Luther scholar of Cornell University, 
Charles Jacobs edited and translated Luther's Correspon- 
dence and Other Contemporary Letters (2 vols., 1913,1918). 
He was the chief collaborator in the publication of the Works 
of Martin Luther in 6 volumes, 1915-1932, which served 
readers until the recent appearance of Luther's Works in 50 
volumes, based on tlie Weimar Ausgabe. 

Tappert tells us that during the Charles Jacobs years at the 
Philadelphia Seminary, he was its most stimulating teacher 
and the academic leader of the-faculty prior to his election as 
president in 1927. He was known for his incisive mind and 
lucid exposition, especially when he lectured on-lhe history of 
Christian thought. Unlike his father, Henry Eyster Jacobs, 
the son held that the creeds and confessions of Christendom 
did not deal with absolutes but with alternatives. They were 
not to be viewed as final but as witnesses and guides to truth. 
His attitude is well typified by a document that he prepared 
in 1920 in cooperation with Frederick H. Knubel: "To ap- 
proach others without hostility, jealousy, suspicion, or pride, 
in ihe sincere and humble desire to give and receive Christian 
service. ." 

During Charles Jacobs's tenure in Philadelphia, possibil- 
hjnge in theological education in the Northeast 
came close to fruition. From the close of the 19th century the 
relationships between the two major seminaries of the 
Lutheran church in the East, Gettysburg and Philadelphia, 
had been cordial. In 1927 representatives of these two 



seminaries met with representatives of the two smaller 
seminaries. Harlwick and Susquehanna, and consolidation 
. was agreed upon in principle. But Hartwick then withdrew. 
In June 1928 the three remaining schools met at Harrisburg 
and reaffirmed the merger. Susquehanna agreed, with the 
proviso that the merger should be approved by the sup- 
porting synods. 

When the synods began to consider this matter, all the 
synods supporting Philadelphia agreed to the merger. Three 
of the synods supporting Gettysburg approved it. Only the 
Allegheny and Susquehanna synods which supported Sus- 
quehanna opposed merger, and one synod. East Pennsyl- 
vania, postponed action. Thus, the attempt to consolidate the 
forces in theological education failed because of the barriers 
set up by the suporters of Susquehanna, whose theological 
school closed anyway in 1932. 

The last member of the Horn family about whom I wish to 
speak is John's brother, Henry Eyster Horn, presently 
teaching at Bryn Mawr College, where his mother studied. 
After serving two parishes and a college presidency, in 1953 
Henry Horn became pastor of the University Lutheran 
Church, just off the Harvard Yard in Cambridge. His 
responsibilities included MIT. and the other schools of the 
Boston area. He was following in the footsteps of his father 
as pastor of a congregation ministering to students and other 
members of the university community. In his own words, he 
has seen his role as a pastor of a congregation in mission 
outward — toward a pluralistic and relativistic world. He has 
authored several books and articles and has shared an in- 
terest with other members of his family in worship and 
music. 

Last December, shortly before taking up his present duties 
at Bryn Mawr, he was honored by Harvard Divinity School. 
On that occasion, Krister Stendahl, professor of New Testa- 
ment and former dean, said, "When I arrived from Sweden 
in August 1954, Henry Horn was the first person I met. The 
temperature was above 90 degrees and so was the humidity. 
He was the only person left in Cambridge. Henry is for me 
Lutheranism at its best. A Lutheran by nature and Christian 
by grace, he is firm, wise, and kind. An avid reader and user 
of the Divinity School Library, he digested his reading 
carefully before returning to his congregation on Sunday 
morning. Over the years University Lutheran Church was 
nothing less than a feast." 

A college is made by its friends who are its benefactors. It 
is interesting that John Horn nominated Gustave Weber for 
the presidency of Susquehanna University. Henry Horn 
nominated Jonathan Messerli as the successor to Gustave 
Weber. Two brothers, able in their own right, have influ- 
enced this school for its good in helping it to find two out- 
standing leaders. 

John Horn shares with Gustave Weber an important 
period in Susquehanna's history: the period of extensive 
building— Weber Chapel Auditorium, Campus Center, 
Fisher Science Hall, new dorms and fraternity houses, 
renovation of Steele, Blough Learning Center, Houtz Gym- 
nasium. Susquehanna was fortunate that there were ties of 
friendship and family between John Horn and Gustave 
Weber. Both of them together formed a team that resulted in 
great advances in Susquehanna's life. Of either of them we 
might repeat the words at the entrance of Selinsgrove Hall, 
applied there to Benjamin Kurtz: "Si Monumentum Re- 
quiris, Circumspice" ("If you seek his monument, look 
around you"). 

II. INNOVATION 

Another side of the story is the fact that John Horn and six 
other members of his family are graduates of Cornell Uni- 
versity, the school that was probably the most innovative and 
influential on American higher education. Ezra Cornell, a 
man of wealth and imagination who was the largest 
stockholder of Western Union, founded that university "in 
which any person can find instruction in any study." The 
school was to be nonsectarian but not anti-religious. It was to 
be in close contact with the public school system rather than 
focusing on the exclusive prep schools. 

From its beginnings Cornell was the school for the prac- 
tical man. It was the school that addressed the needs of the 
American people. Its approach was copied by the major state 
universities of our land. It dramatized the importance of 
coeducation. Under Andrew Dickson White the "most 
abstruse knowledge could be turned to social and political 
use." White wrote "a functional definition of historical 
study." In 1878 he held that "we ought to teach history in 
such a way that it can be applied to the immediate needs of 
our time. . . Our knowledge of history must be brought to 
bear on our time to prevent, if possible, some few of the mis- 




Dr. Otto Reimherr, 
professor of 
philosophy and 
religion, has been 
at Susquehanna since 
1959. A native of 
New York City, he 
holds degrees from 
CCNY. the Lutheran 
Theological Seminary 
at Gettysburg, and 
Columbia University. 
Before joining the 
SU faculty, he was a 
parish pastor, a 
teacher at the seminary and at Wittenberg 
University, and campus pastor for the University 
of Maryland. A busy scholar, he has written a 
number of articles and reviews, directed two 
European Seminar programs for Susquehanna, and 
studied in both Germany and Israel. He also serves 
as director of the University's Institute for 
Studies in the Parish Ministry. 



takes in the future from which mankind has suffered in the 
past." 

The great historian of Cornell, Carl Becker, said that Cor- 
nell exerted such a wide influence because it was better 
situated than other schools to reflect the dominant temper of 
the times. It was neither wholly eastern nor western in its 
location. It was not altogether a state university and was still 
in part a private foundation. It symbolized the dominance of 
industrialism in America after 1865. It aimed at broad learn- 
ing as preparation for the specialized technical occupations 
needed by America's dynamic society. That practical ap- 
proach, typified by Cornell, is certainly an important aspect 
of the Horn tradition. 

Will schools today have the wisdom to match the im- 
aginative practical pioneering of Cornell and deal with the 
issues of the hour? It is hardly necessary for me to remind an 
enlightened audience such as this of the distinctive context in 
which our lives are lived in these demanding days. 

George Keller of the University of Maryland calls to our 
attention two opposite tendencies which appear on the 
horizon. Apparently the number of students who will seek 
places in America's colleges in the next decade will decline. 
While that may be true, we are in a period when our nation 
has need for imaginative and innovative minds, if we are to 
survive as a people. Imaginative innovation in science and 
society, at first, may seem to develop best amid the superior 
facilities of the major universities where research funds and 
elaborate equipment may be available. Yet the small college 
with its close personal relationships between student and 
faculty — if kept on a demanding level rather than merely 
sentiment — may form a superior seedbed for the flowering of 
wise minds. An enlightened educational policy will recognize 
the place of the small college which awakens the student in 
his formative years. 

We might ask the question, "What makes a college in- 
fluential?" Douglas Heath of Haverford College suggests 
that the first six or eight weeks of the school year for its first- 
year students should be intellectually traumatic. Students 
should experience such a cultural shock that they are con- 
vinced they are on the threshold of new adventure. Just as 
crises force us to reassess our lives, so students will grow only 
when they are awakened from late adolescent dogmatic 
slumber. 

But such intellectual trauma will not necessarily evoke a 
grateful response. We live in an age of passivity, apathy, and 
rejection of involvement. When a school or a faculty member 
attempts to challenge students the response is likely to be 
hostility, rather than affection. However, the college does not 
exist to please or flatter, but to move students from a state of 
dependency to eventually becoming autonomous learners. ' 
Beyond hostility will emerge the conviction that there are 
powerful intellectual forces moving through the school. 
Ideally, ninety percent of the faculty and students will agree 
that the college is primarily an intellectual center. Eighty 
percent will agree that the student body is dedicated, con- 
scientious, and capable. And almost eighty percent will 
characterize the school as both making demands of its stu- 
dents and inspiring them toward idealism. 

We might be able to reduce our expectation of the college 
experience for the student to four elements: to free the stu- 
dent from prejudice, to develop depth of interest, to 
humanize the conscience, to stimulate an eagerness for con- 



P»oe 4 SUSQUEHANNA ALUMNUS SPRING 19B0 

tipued learning. And these aims cannot be removed from the 
future i mentions of the student, after he leaves the academic 
halls. Christopher Jencks and David Riesman have pointed 
out that for every school, the question ruling the curriculum 
is always how an institution mixes the academic with the 
vocational, not whether it does so. 

Amid the complexities of the contemporary world we 
would do well to examine the practical common sense in the 
program proposed by Huston Smith at Washington Univer- 
sity in St. Louis, almost 25 years ago, and published in his 
book. The Purposes of Higher Education. SmiUi, later a 
professor at MIT. and Syracuse, saw four necessary com- 
ponents in the life of a school. 

The first component he would include is the several aspects 
of knowledge He would begin with a consideration of man's 
physical and biological nature, so that the student would gain 
a broader understanding of himself: who he is, where he is in 
the cosmic scheme, how he got there, how he ought to live in 
harmony with his nature. This would be followed by an effort 
lo study one's own society, aided by the indirect lighting 
given by anthropology, philosophy, and literature. From 
such study should emerge an understanding of the processes 
that make for personal and group development. 

The component of knowledge would include study of 
man's cultural history, which may often seem to have little 
utilitarian advantage. Yet only in gaining knowledge of one's 
own traditions with its conflicts and its compromises can one 
gain the material to make ready for the healing of the wounds 
of contemporary Western man. 

A second component in Huston Smith's recommendations 
is an emphasis on the development of abilities. The first 
ability a student should develop is the ability to use his own 
language. In this age, when we are surrounded by so great a 
sea of print, all need to be able to transmit ideas in readable 
and understandable prose. But since we talk more than we 
write we need to learn to speak with clarity and conviction. 

Another necessary ability for modem man is the ability to 
think critically. Admittedly, not all thought is of this variety. 
Nevertheless, controlled thinking does have an important 
part to play and can be learned through the formal disciplines 
of logic and mathematics. We can apply such critical thought 
not only to the sciences but also to everyday affairs. 

Since again and again we make value judgments, we need 
to examine our own personal values, the values of our own 
culture, and the values of other cultures. In making value 
judgments we can trace the consequences that follow from 
acting according to values that were accepted in the past, and 
compare them with the values that are operative today. 

Beyond the strictly curricular matters, a student's ex- 
perience involves social situations which bring to the fore 
participatory abilities — amid the low life of the dorm, the 
prattle of the dining table, the responsibility of running 
something such as a school newspaper, or having a part in a 
play, of being a member of a team. 

Among the abilities not to be neglected in a day which de- 
mands we be concerned about the international community, 
is the ability to handle a foreign language. Not only do we 
gain insight and appreciation of how language operates and 
orders thought; the study of a foreign language opens doors 
to other minds so that we share with other people their way of 
looking at realities. 

A third component of a liberal education, said Huston 
Smith, is in the realm of appreciation We might begin with 
the appreciation of beauty, a factor which lights up our world 
and opens our eyes and ears so that we recognize the 
loveliness of our environment, natural or cultural. Huston 
Smith agrees with Alfred North Whitehead that there is 
something about beauty which makes it an all-inclusive vir- 
tue, subsuming within it both truth and goodness. 

As we widen our horizons to the point of entering 
vicariously into the lives of others, we develop an apprecia- 
tion of people. They cease lo be mere props for our purposes. 
We recognize them as human beings in their own right. 
Nothing surpasses great literature in stirring in us the im- 
agination necessary to enter into the hearts and lives of 



Jswph Ban-Oivld 



Trends in A merican Higher Education, published in 
1972, was written by Joseph Ben-David for the Car- 
negie Commission on Higher Education. Then a 
sociologist at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, he 
wrote of colleges as social institutions involved in a 
form of social control as he viewed the situation with 
the objectivity of an outsider. 

What elements are considered of importance in 
American higher education? First, no American uni- 
versity can exist without an effective leader who is able 
to conduct its affairs in a context of a constantly 
changing community, at the same time able to secure 
the needed resources to meet these changes. Leader- 
ship centers in the president of an institution who has 
to be attentive to changes of opinions and changes in 
attitudes among diverse groups of people: the com- 
munity in general, the students, the teachers, the 
alumni, and others who determine the fate of a school. 

Clark Kerr has said that the first task of the presi- 
dent is to preserve the peace, a peace between the inter- 
nal life of the school and the society that surrounds it. 
Furthermore, the stance of the president is necessarily 
ambiguous — he is expected to stand for something in a 
way that offends no one. The result is that presidents 
tend to be non-absolute, cautious liberals. The presi- 
dent is guaranteed an abundance of criticism from 
every sector of the public, including the student 
newspaper which, Ben-David says, is the only publica- 
tion of a school that is permitted to be malevolent. 



others than ourselves. This leads naturally to the apprecia- 
tion of the differences in human nature: strongheaded men 
and conciliators, the bright and the dull, the happy and the 
morose. As we witness the strengths and weaknesses of 
humankind, our tolerance and understanding are increased 
as we deal with those of diverse racial, cultural, and 
economic status. As we catch a glimpse of man's poten- 
tialities we gain a vision of man's best in art, literature, 
philosophy, and religion — all evidences of the need for 
curiosity and wonder. 

The last component Huston Smith considered necessary in 
a liberal education is the dimension of motivation. Unless a 
student develops an adequate hierarchy of values. Smith sees 
trouble ahead in a day when the individual is given greater 
freedom than he has ever known before. To reach ordered 
choices a clarification of values must replace the spiritual 
chaos of adolescence. Such an accomplishment will result in 
the development of an affirmative and constructive orienta- 
tion toward life. 

At the same time, motivation will be needed to develop a 
constructive independence of spirit, changing students from 
barges who need to be pushed and tugged to personalities 
likened to self-propelled ships. With a self-confident 
awareness of a search for truth such confidence will be equal 
to the. new, the unfamiliar, and the unexpected. Smith cites 
an observation of Martin Luther on the brink of excom- 
munication. When asked where he would stand if he were put 
out of the church, Luther replied, "Under the open sky." 

Another aspect of motivation is the willingness to assume 
social responsibility as a participant in a community with 
dimensions reaching out into the world. All mankind is 
related, so we need to encourage students to include the in- 
terests of others within their own; not only to help others but, 
more important, to help in removing obstacles which prevent 
others from developing for themselves. Finally, the motiva- 
tion to seek self-realization at the highest possible level will 
awaken in students understanding of both the heights and the 
depths to which human life can go. 



Joseph Ben-David, a sociologist at the Hebrew University 
in Jerusalem, in writing for the Carnegie Commission on 
Higher Education in 1972. may have summarized all the ob- 
jectives Huston Smith had in mind when pointing out that 
there is no higher objective for all students, serious or not. 
than to learn to become responsible and loving persons in all 
their relationships. 

American society with its complexities needs more than a 
few highly selective colleges to train its citizenry for par- 
ticipatory democracy. Much more is needed than the train- 
ing of a leadership class. American political parties have 
given flexibility to the rigidities of constitutionalism. 
Similarly, a system has emerged in higher education which 
has brought challenges to students who are not completely 
dedicated to their studies because of either indifference or in- 
ability to formulate clear professional goals for the future. 
Such Ben-David denominates "non-students." 

In the informal peer culture of frats, clubs, and teams 
loyalty is learned, warm friendships are made, and devotion 
is developed toward adherence to the purposes of the group. 
Participation in these groups has been good preparation for 
the combination of ruthless competition and loyalty to one's 
team of co-workers required in the world of business. Such 
participation within a universalistic non-kinship society of 
one's own peers has supplied purposive moral education not 
provided by value-neutral scholarly objectivity. In addition, 
these experiences impart the native values of American 
society: genuine equality, importance of character and 
achievement, altruism, loyalty to others. As the self attains 
an identity, "non-students" are even led to appreciate the in- 
tellectual and aesthetic purposes of a college. What began as 
non-intellectural aspects of college life often become an ap- 
preciative and receptive attitude toward science, scholarship, 
and art. 

CONCLUSION 

Joseph Ben-David reminds us also of forgotten factors in 
American higher education. Private colleges and universities 
in America generally trace their origins to a religious com- 
munity. Though these colleges and universities may have lost 
their relationship with a religious community there is no 
other clearly defined community that has emerged to replace 
the religious community. One of the functions of a Board of 
Trustees is to maintain a fiction that the college belongs to a 
particular community. No one is ever certain how to identify 
that fictional community. There are those who will protest 
the religious involvements of a school, but Ben-David re- 
minds us that when the state enters the picture of higher 
education rigidities appear which had been avoided when 
colleges were merely private institutions. Furthermore, 
teachers who treasure their academic freedom should be 
reminded, continues Ben-David, that they enjoy a freedom 
whose roots are religious in the separation of church and 
state. 

Gerald Grant and David Riesman in The Perpetual Dream 
liken colleges and universities to modern secular cathedrals 
which will "remain strong and retain their hegemony on the 
academic landscape." The most distinctive reformers of the 
present have written new creeds which have won few 
adherents. Yet they, like the Protestant Reformers of the 
16th century, sometimes succeed by partial incorporation 
into the larger whole. Following the words of Grant and 
Riesman, any university is a pluralistic cathedral "where dif- 
ferent sects may worship at the side altars as long as most of 
the offerings support the central tenets of the utilitarians and 
the research-oriented faiths." 

In closing, I return to Huston Smith's The Purposes of 
Higher Education: "The most beautiful and most profound 
emotion we can experience is the sensation of the mystical. It 
is the sower of all true science. He lo whom this emotion is a 
stranger, who can no longer wonder and stand rapt in awe, is 
as good as dead." That is a quotation attributed to Albert 
Einstein.

MINUTES OF ALUMNI ASSOCIATION MEETING 

The annual Alumni Weekend meeting of the Susquehanna 
University Alumni Association was held at the Alumni 
Luncheon on Saturday, May 3, 1980, in the Campus Center 
at Selinsgrovc. There were 450 in attendance. The meeting 
was called to order by President Bill Davenport '53 and the 
invocation was pronounced by the Rev. Dr. Paul Reaser, in- 
terim chaplain to the University. 

Following the luncheon. Alumni Relations Director Buss 
Carr '52 introduced the May Court who assisted in 
presenting remembrances to emeriti alumni and those 
celebrating their 50th reunion. Other reunion classes 
recognized were 1935, 1940, 1945, 1950, 1955, I960, 1965,

Crusader Track Coach Jim Taylor is a 
hard worker and a perfectionist. He's not 
one to rest on his laurels, and expresses dis- 
satisfaction with the results of the 1 980 cam- 
paign. 

Listen to some of his comments: "Bad 
weather was a problem; I thought we went 
downhill in terms of conditioning from the 
beginning to the end of the season. Improve- 
ment will come with maturity. We have some 
good recruits coming in. If we can keep 
everybody healthy we should be improved 
next season. In fact, I'll be extremely disap- 
pointed if we're not much better next year." 

Take those quotes out of context, and 
you'd think the speaker was the coach of a 
losing team giving his "wait until next year" 
routine. 

However, Coach Taylor has just guided 
the Susquehanna cindermen to a perfect 10-0 
dual meet record, the first winning track and 
field mark at SU since 1 972 and the first un- 
beaten slate in any sport since the I970 track 
squad went IO-0. 

The I970 Crusader thinclads accom- 
plished something that the 1 980 squad did 
not, and that's where Coach Taylor has set 
his sights. In I970 and again in I97l, the 
Orange and Maroon won the Middle Atlan- 
tic Conference Track Championship. "Next 
year I think we can challenge for the MAC 
title," says Taylor. 

"We didn't have the kind of team it takes 
to win a meet like the MAC Championships 
this year," Taylor says. "Our strong point 
was depth. I'm confident we could beat 
Widener (the MAC champ) in a dual meet. 
But we didn't have the truly outstanding in- 
dividuals needed to score points in cham-

pionship competition against 20 other 
teams," he explains. "We didn't have a 
single athlete who qualified for the NCAA 
Division III meet this year." 

That won't be the case next spring, he 
believes. "We have people on our squad who 
have that kind of potential, and we have 
more coming in this fall." 

Despite the Jack of a championship 
trophy, Taylor is proud of the squad's per- 
formance this spring. "For such a young 
team, their poise was amazing. They had a 
great attitude and made a super overall team 
effort. I was confident we could improve on 
last year's record, but I never dreamed we 
would go undefeated." 

When Taylor first took the SU track post 
prior to the 1979 season, he said he was "not 
accustomed to losing." That was no idle 
boast. A teacher at the local middle school, 
Taylor had enjoyed a 112-39 dual meet 
record and produced six league titles, five 
district titles, and a state championship in 16 
years as head track coach at Selinsgrove 
Area High School. 

At Susquehanna he inherited a program 
that had produced a total of three dual meet 
victories in the previous two years. He 
matched that number in his first season with 
the Crusaders and this spring won them all. 
Taylor's assistant coach at Susquehanna is 
the same one he had at Selinsgrove: Steve 
Jarrett, now assistant dean of students at 
SU. 

Aggressive recruiting was a key factor in 
Susquehanna's success at track and field this 
spring. "I'm the same coach I was last year 
when we were 3-6," quips Taylor. "This year 
we had better athletes." The 49-man roster 



listed 24 freshmen and only four seniors. In 
fact, the top two point scorers were 
freshmen, hurdler Bill Laswell and jumper 
Tom Moore. 

The crucial test for the youthful wearers of 
orange and maroon was a meet in which they 
fell 25 points behind Western Maryland 
before emerging with a 71-70 triumph. 
"Many young teams would have lost their 
composure after getting behind like that, and 
our ability to come back is the mark of a 
good team," Taylor says. 

Another big win for the Crusaders was an 
83-62 decision over perennial power Get- 
tysburg. Although the Bullets had nine first 
place winners, they could not overcome the 
SU depth. Susquehanna, which topped 
Western Maryland twice, also prevailed over 
Elizabethtown, Lycoming, Dickinson, Al- 
bright, Delaware Valley, Lebanon Valley, 
and York. The scheduled season opener with 
Juniata was postponed by rain and reset as 
the final contest of the campaign. Such was 
the Crusaders' reputation by that time that 
the Indians begged to be excused from the 
competition, claiming injuries and desertions 
as the excuse. 

Although they didn't win the MAC title, 
the Crusaders did move up to sixth place af- 
ter finishing eighth the previous year. With 
40 points, Susquehanna was only 13 behind 
third place Haverford, although well out- 
distanced by Widener (105) and Franklin & 
Marshall (93). 

Individual championships were taken by 
Larry Smith in the 800 meters and by the 
400-meter relay unit of Laswell, Ernie 
Meisel, Vince McFadden, and Dean 
Giopulos. 



The Crusaders garnered two medals in the 
1 10-meter high hurdles as Laswell finished 
third and Cliff Holm, sixth. Fourth place 
medals were won by Brian Betz in the pole 
vault, Tim Taylor at 5000 meters, and Kevin 
Doty in the high jump. Sixth place honors 
went to Steve Lamoreaux in the discus and 
Moore in the triple jump. 

"It's nice to be 10-0," says Taylor, "but I 
don't think that's the main accomplishment 
of the season. The biggest thing we have go- 
ing for us now is the enthusiasm we've 
generated and the recognition we've earned. 
Our kids really believe in themselves now 
and say they can hardly wait to get started 
next year. That kind of attitude carries over 
and breeds further success. Next year's in- 
coming freshmen will think it's always been 
like this." 

The old cliche about "team effort" really 
does apply to the SU track squad, and in a 
sport widely regarded as more of an in- 
dividual enterprise. "I believe in the team 
concept," says Taylor. "I try to give as many 
people as possible the chance to participate, 
and try to get the best effort out of 
everybody. If we knew we couldn't win an 
event, we went after second and third; then 
the opposition gains only a one-point 
margin," Taylor notes. The result of this 
strategy is that a total of 35 men entered into 
the scoring for the crusaders this spring. ' 

By keeping everybody involved, you get 
some pleasant surprises. Rich Rudd was not 
among Taylor's prize recruits. He was a 
walk-on, a transfer from Albright who had 
not participated in track with the Lions. Yet 
he proved to be among the more valuable 
Crusaders, totaling 26 points in the long and 



triple jump. 

"Some people might say I'm old fash- 
ioned," says Taylor, "but I'm a 'rah-rah' 
person; I like excitement and I want the kids 
on the team to get excited. I want the team to 
look sharp, with nice uniforms, shirts tucked 
in, matching white socks. I believe if you 
dress sloppily, you'll perform sloppily. I 
don't want to be a dictator, but I think young 
people are looking for direction," he states. 

"I'm afraid some people on campus have 
the attitude that if you're winning a lot, you 
are overemphasizing sports," the coach says. 
"If winning weren't important, they 
wouldn't keep score. Coaches can instill 
more character when the team is winning 
than when it's losing, because the athletes 
will want to work harder if they are seeing 
results," he says. 

"But I do believe in operating within the 
overall framework of the University," 
Taylor explains. "I don't want to make un- 
reasonable demands on the athlete's time 
and energy. Most of our athletes are good 
students. I think it's important for them to 
have time to do other things on campus that 
they are interested in. For instance, even 
though I think our unofficial, indoor, winter 
track program is important for the develop- 
ment of our team, it is not mandatory." 
, With 25 of this year's 27 lettermen return- 
ing, the future is indeed bright for SU track 
and field. And Taylor is not afraid to set 
lofty goals. When asked how he can follow- 
up on a 10-0 season, he quickly replies "with 
an 1 1-0 season." That's assuming all the op- 
ponents show up.

The Rev Dr. KARL E. IRVIN '12, Setn'15 

preached from the pulpit of Wilmette (III.) 
Lutheran Church on May 18, Now 90 years 
of age, he was celebrating the 65th anniver- 
sary of his ordination, which took place at 
Susquehanna on May 15, 1915. He is pic- 
tured, at left, receiving a framed tribute from 
Wilmette Pastor Lawrence W. Wick. 

Throughout the 65 years of Dr. Irvin's 
ministry, he preached in nearly 300 churches. 
He began pastoring in Pennsylvania, serving 
two churches there before accepting a call to 
a parish in Illinois in 1924. Since then, for 
more than 50 years, he has served congrega- 
tions in Illinois. Though he officially retired 
in 1 959 at the age of 70, he continued to work 
with churches there as interim pastor. Dur- 
ing 20 years of active retirement, he served 
seven, as well as one in Iowa and one in 
Wisconsin. 

Last fall Dr. Irvin and his wife, Blanche, 
moved from their home in Freeport to the 
Swedish Retirement Association home in 
Evanston and soon joined the Wilmette 
church. He continues to participate in serv- 
ices there occasionally, as lector and guest 
preacher. 

The celebration of the ordination anniver- 
sary prompted Dr. Irvin to reflect on hisown 
ministry and that of the church he has served 
for 65 years. 

"I actually did drive a horse and buggy 
when I started out," he recalled, seated at a 
table of gleaming black walnut that he'd 
salvaged from a junk wagon half a century 
earlier and had repaired. His father, uncles, 
grandfather all had been carpenters, and 
he'd learned to work with wood as a 
youngster. The table is just one of the lovely 
old pieces he has mended or made during the 
years that make the couple's retirement in 
the retirement complex feel like home. 

He continued: "Now it's the space age. 
The church, too, has changed. But still its 
work is the care of souls. And people still ap- 
preciate soul food. They go to church 
because they want something." 

He believes most of the changes have 
strengthened this work of the church. He 
points to ecumenism, growth in stewardship, 



development of educational program. But 
some, he says, have also lost some good 
things. 

Consolidation of the numerous early con- 
ferences and synods within Lutheranism is a 
plus in his view. "We've gotten away from 
narrow biases," he observed, recalling a suc- 
cession of mergers from his original Sus- 
quehanna Conference to the United 
Lutheran Church to the Lutheran Church in 
America. 

"But BigChurch means more officialdom, 
more regimentation," he points out, "and 
sometimes conformity is stressed too much 
over local needs. You can't make a suit to fit 
everybody." 

The emphasis on education delights him, 
particularly encouragement and reimburse- 
ment for continuing education for parish 
pastors. "For us, continuing education 
meant we got up at 4 or 5 a.m. to get study- 
ing in," he remembers, but not with regret. 

"Preaching is teaching. And there's no 
substitute for work," the pastor insists. 
Preaching, he continues, with pastoral work 
are what he terms the two Ps of a good 
ministry. 

He admits he once bumed his fingers as a 
beginning pastor when he told a congrega- 
tion who to vote for, but says he learned that 
the more important work is to preach the 
true Gospel, reminding that Luther wrote: 
"Make the tree good and the fruit will be 
good." 

He worries a bit about the people today 
who tune in the electronic church. "Aren't 
they getting what they crave here?" he asks. 

Dr. Irvin sees parallels between the elec- 
tronic church now and the tents of popular 
evangelists when he was a young pastor. 
" 'Sawdust evangelism,' we called it," he 
says. 

Though he doesn't favor either the old 
style or contemporary version, he does main- 
tain that preaching must be Christ-centered. 

And that second P of a good ministry — 
pastoral work? "The church is people. 
You've got to visit people. You've got to love 
people," he says. "And I surelydo love peo- 
pie."

THAT'S HOW IT WAS 

by EMMETT FREDERICK 

Through the years, Susquehanna has been able to point with pride to a dis- 
tinguished, talented faculty, men and women of knowledge and gifted with the 
ability to impart that knowledge to the student body. Among such of this early era, 
to name but a few, were Dr. Herbert Allison (French), Dr. Edwin Brungart (Latin), 
Dr. Charles Fisher (business). Dr. George Fisher (science), Dr. Harold Follmer 
(theology), Dr. George Manhart (theology), Dr. John I. Woodruff (English and 
Latin). 

One of the more colorful faculty members was Dr. Harvey A. Surface 
(biology), an imposing figure of a man who in some ways typified the absent- 
minded professor. He was so intent in his work at Susquehanna that he frequently, 
while rummaging in his coat pockets for his notes or other teaching material, would 
produce a dead bird or a dead mouse. Hives of bees lined the driveway of his home 
opposite the college-built double brick houses known as "Faculty Row," on the 
south side of the highway near the west end of the campus. 

"Uncle Tom" Horton, for whom Horton Dining Hall (where all students ate 
until the Campus Center opened in 1968) was named, was a mild, cheerful man. 
Although his title was registrar, he was equally well known for the delicious vanilla 
ice cream, made from the vanilla bean, which he hand-churned to serve "his" boys 
and girls at dining hall meals. 

Another of the faculty whose services were much appreciated by a select few 
townspeople was Dr. John Houtz (chemistry), whose father, Dr. Thomas Houtz 
(mathematics), was also long a professor. 

John was one who was not above keeping a small supply of whiskey on hand, 
either for an occasional nip on a cold winter night or on a warm one, to say nothing 
of possible use as a snake bite remedy. 

The problem then was that Prohibition was the law of the land. Practically all 
who wanted to savor whiskey were reduced to dealing with the moonshiners who 
operated in Selinsgrove and nearby. One backdoor purveyor of such illicit goods in 
Northumberland comes to mind. He offered both whiskey and peach brandy at the 
same price: 25 cents a quart if one brought one's own milk bottle, but 33 cents if the 
bootlegger provided the bottle. There was no deposit return on empties. 

But to return to John Houtz. He was a man careful about what trickled down 
his throat. An excellent chemist, he tested his liquor, as well as that of his friends, in 
the college lab. He sought to determine the degree of purity rather than the 
alcoholic proof. To this writer's knowledge, John never found a bad batch of 
booze, which is some sort of testimonial to the product of the local bootleggers, 
rather than an indictment of the chemist who was a temperate imbiber. 

Susquehanna had its share of males on campus sporting the raccoon coats 
which were then the collegiate fashion Many of those shaggy coats concealed silver 
flasks full of bootleg liquor — a status symbol. Of course, such rum-running was of 
necessity concealed from the "dry" administration. 

Home brew was also available if one knew where to find and gain access to 
local speakeasies. One patronized by male students was at Hoover's Landing, south 
of Selinsgrove. 

One young man dated a professor's daughter. One evening, after returning her 
home to conform to the parental curfew, he hunted up a "speak" and partook 
liberally of needled home brew. Before retiring to his fraternity house across the 
street from his date's home, he arranged a trophy display of empty beer bottles orl 
her front porch, to the early morning consternation of the young lady's sober- 
minded faculty father. 

W.W. Ullery coached both baseball and football at Susquehanna. He directed 
the Crusaders to their first undefeated football season in the campaign of 1932. But 
it was with baseball that he had his real romance. 

Bill was a former major league baseball player, having been first baseman for 
the old St. Louis Browns of the American League. He was a big man and powerful. 
In winter months, he kept in shape by spending long hours on the handball court in 
old Alumni Gymnasium. In the summer months, he generally could be found on the 
Susquehanna Valley Country Club golf course, which he toured in the 
neighborhood of 80. 

What endeared Ullery to many of the sports-minded men of Selinsgrove was 
that he was willing to play first base on the town baseball team, the local entry in the 
West Branch league. He was the town's own "Sultan of Swat" and on numerous oc- 
casions banged a home run off the back wall of the old Bond and Key fraternity 
house to win another game. 

Bill was abstemious and the closest he ever came to swearing was to exclaim, 
"Sons of bricks!" But he did have a temper, as the following will illustrate. 

Bill was a left hander but played golf right handed. He pVobably had the 
world's worst slice when he used a driver for his tee shot. He had to play for it or go 
out of bounds. As a consequence, he always hit a 300-yard drive: 100 yards to the 
left, curving back 100 yards to the right, and coming to rest 100 yards down the 
fairway. 

One day « h ile shooting from the 8th tee at the country club, he hee'led his 
driver and the shot went long and straight, way to the left and probably coming to 
rest in the next county Bill walked to the back of the lee and swung at a tree about 
six inches in diameter. The club head wrapped about the tree three times. He never 
said a word, unwrapped the club from the tree, stuffed it in his bag and continued 
play. 




This sugar bowl and cream pitcher were acquired a couple of years ago 
by Dr. Gynilh Giffin. professor of chemistry at Susquehanna, from a 
local antique dealer. The pieces, which appear to be rather fine china 
but have no identifying marks, are of standard size, in white, with 
gold trim. Each features a reproduction, in color. of'Seibert Memorial 
Hall. Selinsgrove. Pa. " The building is depicted in its original 
stale — as it was first erected in 1901— before additions were made in 
1924. It is assumed, therefore, that these pieces date to the first 
two decades of the century, but no one is certain. Neither the dealer 
nor Dr. Giffin has found anyone who has ever seen another set. or has 
heard of one being made or sold. How about our readers out there? Dr. 
Giffin would be pleased to receive any relevant information about this 
treasured souvenir of the University's Seibert Hall, which is luted on 
the National Register of Historic Places.

SU Sports 



by PETER SILVESTRI 



For the 1980 SU Spring Sports Award Banquet, Athletic 
Director Don Harnum prepared little place cards that read 
"You're a Winner!" The cards were to honor members of 
winning teams. It was easy to figure out where to put them: 
everybody got one. 

While success at spring sports has become a habit at Sus- 
quehanna, this year the Crusaders outdid themselves, as all 
six spring squads came through with winning marks. That's 
the first clean sweep for the Orange and Maroon since the 
| athletic program was expanded to include more than one 
sport per season in the late 1950s. 

The six spring squads had a combined record of 54-30 for a 
winning percentage of .643. An account of the perfect track 

I season can be found elsewhere in this issue of the Alumnus. 
And here's a rundown on the other sports . . . 

Three miles from campus, with no fans save an occasional 
close friend, and without benefit of much attention in the 
news media, toils Susquehanna's winningest team over the 
past decade. While an undefeated track squad and four other 
winning teams were getting all the crowds and headlines this 
spring, the unsung heroes of the SU athletic department 
quietly went about their business. With an 8-4 mark. Coach 
Buss Carr's golfers achieved their 10th straight winning 

i season and their 1 1th consecutive non-losing campaign. 
Coach Carr's 11-year record is 98-46 for a .681 winning 
percentage. But he's modest in discussing the reasons for this 
amazing success. "I'm not sure how to explain it." he says. 
"I don't do any recruiting other than sending letters to 
prospective students who have been involved in high school 
golf But we've been very fortunate to have a lot of good 
golfers come to school here. I think the Susquehanna Valley 
Country Club, one of the finer courses in the conference, at- 
tracts some of our golfers. And in general I think the Univer- 
sity attracts students from the kind of background where 

' they are likely to be members of clubs or have some exposure 
to golf. I'm sure some high school golfers learn about us 
through word of mouth; 1 think that's why we've had so 
many from York I Pa.) County." 

Carr has also discovered some recruits through contacts he 
makes in his role as SV Director of Alumni Relations and as 
an avid golfer who plays in many country club tournaments 



throughout the region. As far as actual coaching is con- 
cerned. Carr confesses. "I think the players appreciate that 1 
leave them alone." Unlike some college golf coaches, he 
doesn I follow his players around during matches to let them 
know how good or bad they're doing. As any golfer knows, 
such meddling during a round is likely todo more harm than 
good. 

As in other years, squad depth and scoring balance were 
the strong suits of the 1980 team. While no one was breaking 
par. the roster listed eight players who averaged between 76.7 
and 85.6 during actual competition. Six players broke 80 at 
least once. The team's match scores averaged 401.8. which 
means that among seven players, the best five typically 
averaged just over 80 on any given outing. 

The SU golfers finished fourth among 21 teams in the 
Middle Atlantic Conference Championships Although 
they've never won the title, the Crusaders have come close on 
several occasions, placing second in 1 971 and third in '73 and 
'78. 

But Coach Carr is not overly optimistic about next year, 
and hopes he hasn't reached the end of an era. He's losing 
half of his eight lettermen. including Milch McFalridge '80 
of Glen Rock, Pa. . the last of three brothers (Mike '78 and 
Mark '79 were the others) who have been mainstays of the 
team since 1975. Returnees include Kent Bostic '81 of New 
Freedom. Pa., member ofSU golfs other brother act (with 
Mark ' 78). products of the same high school (Susquehan- 
nockjas the McFalridges. Also coming back are this spring's 
lop two scorers. Ron Reese '82 of Lancaster, Pa., who 
averaged 76.7, and Tom Wolven '81 of Fullerton. Calif., 
79.8. 

This year was the first ever in which Susquehanna had two 
winning tennis teams. The Crusader women, with Don Har- 
num serving as interim coach during Connie Delbaugh's 
maternity leave, completed their fifth .straight winning 
season, posting a 5-2 mark. The surprising netmen, under 
second-year Coach Al Stout, finished 6-5 for their first win- 
ning record in 13 years. The last time the men had a winning 
season was in 1967, one year before the SU women began of- 
ficial varsity intercollegiate tennis competition. Lynn 
Pickwell '82 of Pittsfield , Mass., undefeated in dual matches, 
and Peter Brockman '80 of Fort Washington, Pa., were 
named Most Valuable Players. 

On a less pleasant historical note, the Crusader women 
lost a first singles point for the first time since 1975, ending a 
string of 31 straight wins by Ginny Davis '77 and Donna 
Gottshall '81 ofSchwenksville, Pa. Another disappointment 
of the spring was that the netwomen failed to defend their 



SPRING 1880 SUSQUEHANNA ALUMNUS Pape 17 

1979 MAC title. With the conference championship decided 
by dual match standings for the first time. Susquehanna 
finished second to Elizabelhtown in the Southern Division. 



The SU Softball team has a perfect record of its own: in its 
three-year history it has scored three winning seasons, the 
last two under Coach Pat Reiland The diamondgirls went 
11 -9 this spring with a splendid stretch run in which they won 
10 of their last 13 after starling 1-6. The fast finish featured a 
no-hitler by Sue Bowman '81 of Mendham. N.J., a double- 
threat who had a .396 batting average to go with her pitching 
prowess. Shortstop Candy Schnure '80 of Mifflinburg. Pa., 
who batted .347 and led the team in stolen bases and runs 
scored, was named MVP. 

Coaches may come and go, but the Crusader baseball 
team keeps on winning. First-year Coach Scot Dapp, third 
SU mentor in three years, brought his charges Borne with a 
14-11 slate, fifth straight winning season for the Orange and 
Maroon. Dapp pledges he'll be around next spring so this 
writer can't say "fourth coach in four years." The baseball 
team also had a fine finish, taking four of the final five. 
Pitcher Bill Carson '80 of Williamsport, Pa., who posted a 5- 
I mark with a 2.72 ERA and 53 strikeouts in 43 innings, was 
voted MVP. The Bison-beater pitched SU to three straight 
wins over Bucknell during his career. Catcher Dale Kyler '80 
of Ashland, Pa., had the hottest bat this spring at .328. 

Candy Schnure, winner of six letters and co-captain in 
both field hockey and Softball, and Russ Stevenson '80 of 
Midlothian, Va., winner of eight tellers in cross country and 
track and fund-raiser for the Selinsgrove United Way. 
received the top athletic awards at Susquehanna this year. 
Schnure won the A WS Most Valuable Senior Woman 
A thlele A ward and Stevenson the Blair Heaton Memorial 
A ward. The same pair was cited as the Outstanding Senior 
Athletes by the University's Crusader Club. 

The women's basketball coaching situation has been un- 
steady at SU since Rose Ann Neff left the post two years 
ago. Things appear to be in firm control now with the ap- 
pointment of Tom Diehl, who served as an assistant coach 
with the Crusader men's quintet last winter. Veteran of many 
years of coaching in high schools and municipal recreation 
programs, Diehl has worn a path on the recruiting trail this 
year. He promises to bring in new talent and get more out of 
the returning players as he seeks to bring the Crusadef 
women their first winning season since 1963.

style and choice of words. They do, however, 
seem to indicate patterns of language which 
might be common to Poe. The 1 1 stories, ap- 
proximately one hundred pages, comprise 
too small a sample for conclusions, but are 
enough to arouse curiosity. 

In order to test our last stage of produc- 
tion, we were forced once again to limit the 
material being used. Two stories, "Met- 
zengerstein" and "Shadow-A Parable," 
were fed, in edited form, into the computer. 
The task meant recalling the originally- 
texted story, running the sort segment of the 
program, and modifying the resulting list. 
Once the modifications were made, the sort 
and compile segment of the program was run 
(with some changes in the program). Copies 
of the resulting printout were then printed as 
samples to be distributed to interested per- 
sons and organizations. 

Thus, a sample of a possible concordance 
has been completed, but the project itself has 
just begun. Michael Kistler '82 is now mak- 
ing further modifications on the existing 
computer program to increase speed and ef- 
ficiency, edited material is still being fed into 
the computer data base, and Dr. Wiley is 
busy distributing the seven-page sample to 
Poe Studies Association members and other 
interested scholars. Input from people out- 
side the project is vital now to help improve 
the format and content of the concordance as 
well as its potential usefulness. Financial 
backing, on a large scale, is becoming a more 
pressing necessity. The entire project will 
take years of hard work and dedication to 
complete, but with each small step and bit of 
encouragement, the enthusiasm spreads and 
the dream comes closer to reality.

Semester in Liberia . . . 

THE LOVE OF LIBERTY BROUGHT US HERE 



by ROBERT L. BRADFORD 

A wave of spontaneous applause broke out among the 
passengers in the huge cabin of our PanAm 747 as its wheels 
met the runway of Kennedy International Airport. Clipper 
"Morning Star," originating in Nairobi, was filled to 
capacity and even though our early morning landing was 
smooth enough, bathed in the pink and orange glow of a July 
dawn, the ten hours we'd spent over the Atlantic from the 
West coast of Africa had been rather unpleasant. Con- 
siderable air turbulence had made it a bumpy flight and in the 
absence of a movie, it was hard to take one's mind off the cof- 
fee, wildly sloshing about as it did, first in one's cup and then 
in one's stomach. But we reached New York on schedule, 
and if the applause (which was a new experience for me 
among airplane passengers) was in thankfulness for our safe 
arrival. I was ready to join in heartily, though the captain 
could not possibly have heard us. All seemed glad that the 
tension of the night was ended. 

At the same time, 1 had reason to believe that the applause 
originated within a particular segment of our passengers — 
namely that large group of Americo-Liberians who boarded 
with us in Monrovia. They would have had special reason to 
cheer upon reaching the American shore. "Americo- 
Liberians" are today's descendants of the freed American 
slaves who settled along the West African coast in the 1800s. 
Now many of them are fleeing from Liberia since a military 
coup on April 12 toppled their oligarchy from its pillar of 
economic and political preeminence. The Liberian army un- 
der the ad hoc leadership of Master Sergeant Samuel K. Doe 
had not only ousted an entrenched class from power, but had 
slain its patriarch — President William R. Tolbert Jr.— and 
had brutally executed 13 of his top officials in addition to 
killing approximately 30 persons trying to protect Tolbert on 
the night of the revolution. It had been the first military coup 
in the 1 33 years since Liberia became an independent nation. 
It had taken place in Africa's oldest and most stable republic. 
It took place at a time when President Tolbert was serving 
the traditional one-year term as Chairman of the Organiza- 
tion of African Unity. Truly, the audacity and cruelty of the 
low-ranking, semi-literate, non-commissioned officers who 
led the coup had stunned the Americo-Liberians (variously 



estimated to number between 25,000 and 45,000 in a total 
population of 1.7 million). Dazed, bitter, and resentful, they 
had every reason to break into applause when they reached 
the security and freedom of the land of their forefathers. 
"The love of liberty brought us here" may well have been 
their response had they been asked why they were so ob- 
viously relieved to be in America. 

If so, history had come full cycle because it was the "love 
of liberty" that motivated ex-slaves from the United States 
to settle on the West African coast during the presidency of 
James Monroe. Sponsored by a private philanthropic agency 
called the American Colonization Society, the black settlers 
from America called their collection of coastal settlements 
"Liberia" (from the Latin "libertas," freedom) and they 
adopted as their national motto the phrase "The love of 
liberty brought us here." 

Now, a century and a half later, the "love of liberty" was 
causing many of them to leave Liberia and come to the 
United States, at least temporarily, until liberty — or their 
version of it — could be restored in their homeland once 
again. Fearing harassment, intimidation, theft of property, 
discrimination, perhaps even arrest and imprisonment, some 
of these fleeing Americo-Liberians were our fellow 
passengers on PanAm flight 191. The reverse-thrust roar of 
our engines did not drown out their applause as we landed in 
New York. 

Flight 191 was bringing my wife and me home from 
Liberia, a Pennsylvania-sized country on the western bulge 
of Africa. We had been for five months the faculty leaders of 
the first Semester in Liberia program sponsored by the 
Lutheran Church in America's Department of Higher 
Education and the LCA's 18 affiliated colleges. 

As a teacher of international relations, an advocate of in- 
ternational education, and with a special interest in that two- 
thirds of the world that we underrate by calling the Third 
World, I had urged the LCA throughout the mid-'70s to ex- 
plore the possibility of starting up a new overseas study 
program for our college undergraduates. Nearly all of our

Enrollments 

At the moment I'm writing this, none of us is quite certain just how many students 
enrolled at Susquehanna for the first term of 1980-81. One colleague who was working with 
the computer said he ran 1 536 student ID cards one day, but then ran only 1 525 names for the 
student directory the next. They could both be accurate figures, given the passage of 24 hours, 
and no doubt a few more names will disappear from the list during these first few weeks. 

The point is that SU enrollment is higher than ever before — even higher than last year's 
record 1457 full-time students. 

"How," you say, "can this be? I thought the colleges are supposed to be feeling the pinch 
of lowering birthrates." Well, they are — that is, some of them are. And, according to the 
demographers, more will feel the pinch in the years immediately ahead. Also, if you're 
located in the Northeast and draw most of your students from your own region, as we do, 
population shifts make you even more vulnerable. Of course, there are other factors that af- 
fect how a particular institution will fare in the prospective-student marketplace: cost, per- 
ceived academic quality, programs offered, size, environment, etc. Susquehanna stacks up 
pretty well in most of these categories, and is looked upon by many as a desirable place to go 
to school. No doubt that has a lot to do with the University's enrollment increase of over 4 
percent. There is another factor, too, that seems to be significant. 

The National Institute of Independent Colleges and Universities conducted a survey last 
year which showed that church-related institutions of higher education had greater enroll- 
ment increases than other private colleges. Total enrollment at church-related colleges last 
fall was up 1.9 percent from the fall of 1978, compared to an increase of 0.5 percent at other 
private institutions. These changes were interesting: 

First-year students — up 1 .9 percent at church-related colleges, up 1 .2 percent at others. 

° Transfer students — up 10.8 percent at church-related colleges, up 1 .7 percent at others. 

"Graduate students— up 0.3 percent at church-related colleges, down 0.1 percent at 
others. 

The implications are clear. Susquehanna has a lot going for it in these troublesome 
times. Not the least strength is our identity as a college related with the Lutheran Church in 
America. While there are those who don't support SU's church-relationship, or only give it 
lip service, it is a viable advantage in the competition for students. Let us support the ad- 
ministration in its efforts to build upon all our various strengths as we gear up to meet the 
future.

A Continuing Series 

For Young Alumni 




Are You Living in 
Your Kind of Place ? 



Where you live can have a huge 
impact on how you live. Recent 
college graduates talk about varied 
approaches to choosing a place to 
live and suggest ways to minimize 
the discomfort of a poor choice. 

by CHARLES ANZALONE 



For most graduating seniors, choosing 
the Right Place to live is not a top 
priority — certainly not as high on the list as 
finding the Right Job, the Right Company, 
the Right Salary, or the Right Mate. Besides, 
in a tight job market, who can afford to be 
picky? 

It shouldn't be surprising, then, that a 
large number of people conclude within a 
year of leaving college that somehow they 
have landed in the Wrong Place — and locale 
starts to take on more importance. Where 
you live can, in fact, have a huge impact on 
how you live. Feeling at home in your 
surroundings can mean the difference be- 
tween enjoying the day fully and feeling one 
more day away from Where You'd Rather 
Be. 

There are two approaches to the latter 
situation. One is to make the best of it— a 
good-faith effort to look for the positive side 
of your present location. The other is to scan 
the horizon for the next exit ramp. 

Before you decide to make your next 
move, you will presumably have a clear idea 
of what you want from a locale. What makes 
the Right Place right? Which is another way 
of saying, what are your values, and what is 
really most important to you in your own 
life? If you haven't got that one figured out, 
the next place might be no better for you 
than the present one. 

"Many times you are disappointed be- 
cause you expected the area to provide you 
with something," says David Anderson, 
director of the Career Development Center 
at the State University of New York at 
Binghamton. "If you can identify that some- 
thing, there are other areas that can provide 
you with that. If you know what's important 
to you, it will give you a real clue to what to 
look for." 

The ideal may not really exist, says 
Anderson, so "ask yourself what compro- 
mises you are willing to make. There are 
certain factors that are negotiable and cer- 
tain factors that are not, no matter what." 

Mary Ellen Hem, unlike a lot of gradu- 
ates, made place her top priority and let the 
job follow. She has just celebrated her 
second anniversary in the environment of 
her dreams. New York City. 

"I wanted to be in the heart of the 
competition," says Hern, 23, a magazine 
journalism major. "New York attracts the 
best, the people who will be at the top in 10 



years. 1 love the excitement, the pulse, the 
draw. It's like a 1940s movie. I wanted to bea 
real person in the toughest situation possible 
Afterward it would just get easier." 

It was plenty tough, all right. Twice she 
has landed jobs at prestigious publications, 
only to resign each time in discouragemenl 
Only now is her freelancing-for-free starting 
to pay off by leading to assignments witha 
financial return. She has been tricked out of 
a $600 advance rent-and-security deposit - 
the ninth of 15 people to rent the same 
apartment from a con artist. She has lived in 
a neighborhood where the garbage was 
peculiarly fire-prone and in an apartment 
building that one morning was missing a 
marble wall from the lobby But Hern is still 
in New York, by choice. 

"The quality of my friends is so high." she 
says. "They are all tough, but they haven't 
lost their capacity for loving, their sensitivity, 
their perception, the guilelessness in their 
souls. Most are expatriates like I am. They 
are here because they want to be in the

THE LOVE 
OF LIBERTY

LCA colleges, including Susquehanna, have interim 
semester or summer study programs in Europe. But we had 
long overlooked the developing countries of the non-Western 
world whose very long histories and rich cultural heritage are 
every bit as worthy of study and appreciation as the 
cathedrals of England or the art treasures of Florence or the 
modern economic miracle of Brussels. Besides, it has always 
seemed to me that it was in our own national self-interest to 
better understand the cultures and problems of the Third 
World, since the largest remaining reservoir of human, 
agricultural, and mineral resources on earth lies in that 
region. It seemed inconceivable to me that the colleges — as 
colleges related to a church which has long had evangelical 
and humanitarian missionary interests in these lands — had 
up to now shown no inclination to promote intellectual con- 
cern for a part of the world that was becoming increasingly 
important to America, to the continuation of our high stan- 
dard of living if not to our very survival. 

To make a long story as short as possible, the LCA 
Department of Higher Education authorized me to design 
such a program on paper. Once the program was designed, 
the church asked me to organize the first effort, and then to 
be the actual faculty leader of the group. Enthusiastically, I 
agreed, and was happy to have the equally enthusiastic sup- 
port of the Susquehanna administration. 

I selected Liberia as the program site for a number of 
reasons: 120 years of Lutheran missionary work there meant 
that the Church had many important contacts in Liberia; I 
had my own personal connections as a result of having taught 
at Liberia's Cuttington College on my first sabbatical in 
1 969-70; the country itself has had a historic connection with 
the United States and is therefore the most "Americanized" 
nation in Africa; the Republic of Liberia is Africa's oldest 
democracy and has historically been the most politically 
stable country on the continent. Little did we know how this 
last reason was to dissipate in a puff of smoke on April 12! 

Eight excited and adventuresome students flew with us to 
Liberia on January 31 and home again on flight 191. The 
eight students represented five LCA colleges — Joy 
Greenawall and Heather Douglass from Wittenberg Univer- 
sity, David Hoffsis from Gettysburg College, Bobby Hebert 
and Mary Martin from Roanoke College, Burts Bryant from 
Newberry College, Ruth Rissmiller and Ronald Hertz from 
Susquehanna. 

Ours was to be a truly cross-cultural living experience. We 
wanted to see, smell, feel and taste a traditional culture not of 
"Western" origin. We planned to immerse ourselves as fully 
as we could in a life-style and value system that is rapidly dis- 
appearing under the relentless pressure of the "modern" 
world. Our purpose in all this was to gain a better un- 
derstanding of the nature and processes of social change, to 
become more familiar with the needs and expectations of a 
Third World nation, to develop a global (in place of a narrow 
national) perspective of life as it is lived by the majority of the 
world's people, and thereby to gain new insights (some 
critical, some sympathetic) into the ethical and material 
basis of our own civilization. In learning more about others 
we would come to better understand ourselves. Our own lives 
would be richer for the effort; our understanding of world af- 
fairs would be sharpened; and perhaps our compassion for

the world's poor and our forbearance toward their often 
radical behavior would be enhanced. All this was to be ac- 
complished through travel, academic study, work ex- 
periences, visits in the homes of a cross-section of Liberia's 
people, excursions, field trips, "bush hikes" to remote 
villages, special lectures, service projects, missionary en- 
counters. 

After a two-week orientation session on the SU campus, 
we flew to Monrovia where we spent the entire month of 
February. Our activities here ranged from a tour of President 
Tolbert's Executive Mansion to a private dinner in the home 
of an Americo-Liberian "notable" we met in church one 
Sunday. We were given an excursion through the mammoth 
Firestone rubber plantation which some students criticized 
as a blatant "see-how-well-we-treal-our natives" tour. Some 
local students look us around the campus of the University of 
Liberia and gave us a chance to dialog with the emerging

educated and nationalistic elite. We were treated to dinner at 
the Ducor Hotel by the Honorable A.B. Tolbert (the Presi- 
dent's oldest son), but we also shared a meal with a city 
fireman in his single rented room in Slipway, Monrovia's 
worst riverside slum. At Muhlenberg on the St. Paul River 
we saw the site of the first Lutheran mission station (1860) 
and later had dinner with Bishop Roland Payne, who heads 
the now-independent Lutheran Church in Liberia. We visited 
the exotic facilities at the site of the OAU Heads of State 
Conference which President Tolbert hosted in 1979, now 
turned into a luxury hotel begging for a clientele. We were in- 
vited to appear on a Sunday evening television program 
called "Concern" where we were asked to explain why we 
had come to Liberia and what we hoped to accomplish. On 
February 12 we had a fascinating half-day session at the 
American Embassy where, in turn, Ambassador Robert P. 
Smith and each of his department chiefs talked to us about 
the state of political and economic affairs in Liberia. 

If the Ambassador knew that the first military coup in 
Liberia's history was to take place exactly eight weeks later 
he kept it a secret from us! We visited an open-pit, German- 
owned iron mine which provides Liberia with some of its 
foreign exchange earnings, and Mt. Coffee Dam which 
provides Liberia with some of its electric current. We made a 
hard, four-day overland trek to the neighboring country of 
Sierra Leone. 

Interspersed among all these group activities were chunks 
of free time that allowed the students to explore on their own. 
And explore they did. They brought home everything from 
carved masks to malaria. They swam in the Atlantic where 
they battled a notorious undertow. They also did battle 
against street vendors, infamous for their efforts to wheedle 



the highest possible price for their colorful handicrafts, es- 
pecially from Americans. 

Through it all, we made new friends, had new experiences, 
saw through "new" eyes, heard with "new" ears, and sweat 
through glands we never knew we had (February being in the 
torrid "dry season"). 

At the end of February we moved 1 10 miles upcountry, 
from "modern" (if a bit ramshackle) Monrovia to the 
"traditional" bush-country. Here in an area of low forest lay 
Cuttington College, a four-year liberal arts college affiliated 
with the Protestant Episcopal Church. Our students

registered for courses in Semester I which began March 3 — 
for the same kinds of courses they would have taken at home 
except that these would often have a heavier African focus 
and would most likely be taught by an African instructor. It 
was here at Cuttington that the students really got "im- 
mersed" into West African culture. They experienced 
everything from the palm-oil-based stew over rice that was 
the monotonous daily fare in the cafeteria to hikes on bush 
trails into remote mud-hut and thatch villages with new 
friends they made among the 600 students. They swam 
(against my better judgment) in schistosomiasis-infested 
rivers and they walked to forest waterfalls, learning how to 
cut "water vines" from the forest canopy to supply a torrent

of pure drinking water. Some collected oral traditions from 
village elders and chiefs which they wrote up as term papers. 
Some sang in the college choir and performed vocal music in 
six different West African languages. Some participated in 
basketball, played more roughly in Liberia than we know it. 
Mary Martin had her hair plaited and Bobby Hebert ate 
snails in the bush village he visited — both aspects of 
traditional Liberian culture. The students visited mission 
churches, hospitals, schools, and adult literacy centers. They 
built a zinc roof on the caretaker's house at a Lutheran youth 
camp and planted seed cover on the oil palm farm of the 
Totota parish. They learned how to tie-dye cloth and to ride 
"money-buses" shared by goats, chickens, banana stalks, 
and nursing mothers. Some got dysentery and everyone at 
one time or another had trouble with runny stomach or fever. 
As a result, we would empathize with Liberians. most of 
whom carry through their lives varying levels of one or more 
parasitic or debilitating diseases. 

But don't feel sorry for the American students. Amidst all 
their lectures and term papers and tests, the heavy campus 
politics and the merciless sun, we all once managed to escape 
for almost a week to the far north. There, in the Nimba 
Mountains, a joint Swedish-Amencan-Liberian company 
operates an iron mine. Pan of the mine complex is a 
beautiful Swedish-built community center, movie theatre, 
shopping mall, restaurant, and colossal outdoor swimming 
pool which we used to the fullest. Nimba is the traditional 
god of iron for West African peoples and this mountain 
range, looking for all the world like Shade Mountain near 
Selinsgrove (except that Nimba is four times higher) is 65 
percent pure iron ore. As in the case of Firestone, we learned 
here about the economic growth, if not development, 
stimulated by multi-national corporations. 

The students would probably tell you that their deepest 
memories are of life on the Cuttmgton campus among 600 
students of both Americo-Liberian and tribal origin This 
"mix" provided experiences ranging from the light and 
frivolous to the heavy and frightening. An African college 
campus is a strongly politicized microcosm of the national 
political scene. Conservative or revolutionary ideals are held 
«ith .in intensity that defies description. Hot political 
debates in the dorms are staple fare just as much as rice is in 
the campus cafeteria. The student government president is 
allied to one of the national political movements or factions 
in the capital. If that party happens to be in power in 
Monrovia, to oppose the SGA president at Cuttington on 
any issue becomes a treasonable act Intolerant attitudes and 



uncompromising stances seem to characterize politics in 
Third World capitals and on campuses. Cuttington was con- 
tinuously threatened with closure by the disruptive tactics of 
one group or another. 

Inter-ethnic tensions, long present in Liberia and therefore 
long prevalent at Cuttington, exploded when the military 
stunned the country by coming out of its barracks in the early 
morning hours of April 12. This coup has to be the one event 
all of us remember most vividly. 

Although it was not the "love of liberty" that brought a 
Susquehanna professor and a group of eight students to 
Liberia, all of us did come to new insights into the meaning of 
liberty, and how antithetical to our understanding of liberty 
is the fickle, arbitrary, unpredictable rule of a military 
regime in a Third World country. All ten of us. including my 
wife, were scattered in small groups around the country on 
the weekend of the coup. Each of us in our own locations had 
our particular frightening experience and brush with danger 
at the hands of poorly trained, undisciplined soldiers. New 
power (which they didn't know what to do with) and ex- 
cessive cane juice (which they did know what to do with) both 
went quickly to their heads and turned them into animals. In 
the days immediately following the coup they tried to steal 
gasoline from the pump on the Lutheran mission compound 
in Monrovia. They "liberated" people of their private cars 
and roared around city and countryside with one leg inside 
and one leg outside their open windows firing automatic 
weapons into the air. In this fashion some of them made their 
grand entrance onto the Cuttington College campus where 
they roughed up the President, seized a dean, threatened 
male students who refused to tell them the whereabouts of 
their classmate Steven Tolbert (the president's youngest 
son), raped a Liberian coed, and left a bullet embedded in the 
wall over Dave Hoffsis's bed. They tried to extort money 
from American visiting professors and stole watches off the 
wrists of nationals and expatriots alike. They invaded the 
grounds of Phebe Hospital (a Lutheran mission institution 
near Cuttington) looking for recuperating Tolbert loyalist 
soldiers whom they had wounded in earlier shootouts. 
Finding their victims in the wards, they pulled them out to a 
spot behind the hospital and finished them off. Men gone 
berserk. . . . 

Promising "new freedom" and "security and justice for all 
persons." the miluarv nonetheless quickly imposed restric- 
tions upon the free dissemination of public news. For exam- 
ple, the People's Redemption Council (the new military 
clique) vehemently insisted through its spokesman that all 1 3 




executed Tolbert officials had been condemned as guilty by 
the PRC's special military tribunal, but never could suppress 
the rumor (later confirmed to be true (that only four of the 13 
had actually been condemned to death. The other nine were 
simply executed anyway because Doe wanted them dead. 

Further insecurity just after the April 12 coup was caused 
by confusion over which army officers were properly in con- 
trol. The question "Who's in charge here?" came home to us 
most graphically when the military commander who first 
arrived in our county seat of Ebernga and for four days ad- 
ministered the affairs of Bong County (where Cuttington 
College is located) turned out to be an imposter' Having 
arrested Tolberl's county superintendent, the imposter was. 
m turn, arrested by Sgt. Doe's appointee, a truly loony 
character named Lt. Badey Za\zay. Jr. Lt. Zayzay liked to 
address the Cuttington student body waving a loaded pistol 
in one hand and a fly-whisk in the other. Mad men. all 

Let two things be recorded here, however. In spite of these 
initial excesses and the widespread insecurity just alter the

coup, a semblance ol orderliness began to be restored within 
a week's time. Life rather quickly returned to normal, as long 
as one was not an Americo-Liberian tarnished with "ram- 
pant corruption." People and goods (if not ideas and news) 
began to move about routinely again. And the initial blood 
bath ended under international (especially American) 
pressure. 

More important still, it should be understood that the 
revolution was welcomed with unabated rejoicing by the 
"country people" — the "aborigines" or "tribal people" as 
they are variously called — that is, the more than 1.5 million 
"native" Liberians who have lived in the interior of the coun- 
try for at least 400 years. These Liberians were ecstatic that 
their "freedom" had been won at last The "love of liberty" 
had certainly not brought them to the shores of West Africa 
from America in the 1820s Their ancestors had been the 
original inhabitants, or indigenes, of the land the black 
American colonialists called "Liberia." Their ancestors had 
tried by force of arms to drive off these American settlers 
They failed because they had arms inferior to those of the set- 
tlers. The country people acquired and over time nursed a 
perceived set of economic, social, and political grievances 
that finally exploded. Their ancestors felt humiliated by a 
black American heroine named Matilda Newport who 
crossed a battlefield and "demonstrated" to Bassa warriors 
how to fire a cannon they had captured from the Americans 
by lining them up in front of it, setting it off, and killing them 
all. Ever since, the indigenes' ancestors down through the 
generations have been humiliated by having to celebrate 
"Matilda Newport Day" as a national holiday every Decem- 



ber 16, marking the victory of the Americo-Liberians over 
the "ignorant natives." Today's generation of country people 
feel every bit as alienated by their systematic and almost 
complete exclusion from the councils of government, from 
the better jobs in the economy, and from the higher ranks of 
society. They have never been impressed by ex-President 
Tolbert's insistence that his administration was acting to 
correct these wrongs and to root out the accompanying

corruption that permeated all levels of the Americo-Liberian 
dominated government. So it is that the country people 
welcomed Sgt. Doe's military revolution. On April 12 they 
applauded the use of arms that were turned against those 
who had so long used weapons to protect their hegemony. 
Two final points need to be made and made strongly. One 
is that the military coup had no anti-American overtones 
whatsoever. Our American students at Cuttington were 
never in any danger of being seized as Iranian-style hostages. 
On the contrary. Americans, especially American mis- 
sionary agencies and personnel, are looked upon as legen- 
dary figures because over many decades most of them 
located their schools, hospitals, clinics, and churches up- 
country in the tribal hinterland. "These white people have 



FALL 1980 SUSQUEHANNA ALUMNUS Page 5 

come nere to help us country people," ! overheard one 
Libenan man telling a soldier. 

The final point is that even though the April 12 military 
coup is being described as a "social revolution" because it 
has overthrown an entrenched social class, there has been no 
genocide against the Americo-Liberians asa group. Sgt. Doe 
has made it clear that the revolution was not aimed at 
Americo-Liberians as such, but only at the highest, most self- 
serving, mosi corrupt elements in the Americo-Liberian 
dominated oligarchy. Most Americo-Liberians have not left 
the country, although most feel some degree of insecurity 
because tnev are not certain how 1 far "down'' in the A-L 
social siructure the military's purges and tne rein'hution will 
f i One nonest and modest Americo-Liberian even said to 
me anout the revolution, "We all knew it was coming. To ,i 
large extent, it s our fault that it happened. This particular 
man did not have his car stolen, nor his house ransacked; nor 
did he lose his job in one ol the government ministries But he 
nonetheless feels he s in a shaky position. Not being certain 
what will happen next and angry at what he sees as the "ex- 
cesses and unpredictability" of the military, he plans to leave 
the country as soon as the opportunity presents itself. 

1 hope in this essay that 1 have conveyed the basis for the 
political instability that afflicts so many of the developing 
countries — the social and economic injustices and the 
political grievances that accumulate when a tiny group of 
"rich' ' monopolize power. This monopoly causes an eventual 
polarizing and politicizing of the "poor" who constitute the 
bulk of the population Their demands, fed by grievances 
leading to a "revolution of rising expectations," too often 
finds "saviors" in the military, which views itself as om- 
niscient and omnipotent My fear is that the country people 
of Liberia will soon be sorely disappointed by the armed 
forces they now worship as heroes, because of the severe 
educational and administrative limitations of the military 
The army cannot possibly deliver on all the promises unosilv 
economic and social) that it has made since April 12 Andol- 
ficers of the PRC seem intent upon interfering in the day-to- 
day workings of their own civilian ministers This is 
preventing the civilian ministers from making good on the 
army's promises. In fact, two ministers have already defected 
while on official trips abroad. 

I sense that the disillusionment of the indigenous popula- 
tion is already growing. Sgt. Doe's motorcade, and that of 
his wife, are greeted with only restrained cheering. The two 
of them roar around Monrovia in limousines far bigger than 
the Tolberts ever used. 

I also heard stories of an encounter between a tribal man 
and one of Doe's military superintendents At a public 
meeting in Lofa County, a citizen expressed his dismay over 
the new military superintendent's inarticulateness and poor 
command of English: to which the officer angrily replied, 
"Gov'ment gimme gun, no' English'" 

So there you have it. Liberia is ruled by the gun today. This 
being the case, will the LCA Department of Higher Educa- 
tion sponsor a study program in Liberia again in 1981 for 
students from our Lutheran colleges? Yes, if Ambassador 
Smith advises us this fall that the political and economic 
situation is stable. For in what better laboratory can a stu- 
dent learn about the realities of life and politics in the 
developing countries which make up such a large portion of 
today's world and which control so much of the world's 
remaining natural resources? One assumes, obviously, that 
the laboratory is not likely to blow up while the students are 
in it. 

"Dr. B., next year, what will you do for an encore?" One of 
our group asked me 

That set me to thinking. Maybe it was my own American 
students who had started the applause on the plane as it 
landed at JFK The pursuit of greater knowledge and sen- 
sitive understanding about a little known corner of our 
shrinking world had taken them to Africa. But the love of 
liberty happily brought them here, again, to America. 

Do I need to write more about what a rich learning ex- 
perience the eight American students had on the first LCA- 
sponsored Semester in Liberia program? The result for them 
was a new understanding of the meaning of domestic tran- 
quility, national security, personal freedom, civil liberty, 
social and economic justice, and democracy. They 
experienced it in a "live-virus" laboratory, and will be 
stronger world citizens for it.

Learning and Caring in Baltimore 



by PETER SILVESTRI 



"The Baltimore Urban Term was the most important part 
of my education," says Sheila Eckman '76. "The experience 
gave me the skills necessary for my particular position and 
increased my self-confidence and appreciation of diverse life- 
styles." A sociology major, Eckman interned in Baltimore 
with the field staff of the Girl Scouts of Central Maryland 
and is now field director for the Connecticut Yankee Girl 
Scout Council in Farmington, Conn. 

Betsy O'Connor '78 didn't find her career through the 
Baltimore program, but she did find a home. As an intern 
with Planned Parenthood, she found that she liked living in 
an urban area. Because of its different neighborhood iden- 
tities. "Baltimore has the qualities of a big city combined 
with the warmth of a small town," she says. "People watch 
out for each other." A biology major, O'Connor is a techni- 
cian in the hematology laboratory at the Bon Secours 
Hospital in Southwest Baltimore, only a few blocks from the 
house at 1 508 Hollins St. where SU students live during their 
term in the city. 

For the past seven years, Susquehanna University has 
been using the city of Baltimore, especially its Southwest sec- 
tion, as a living laboratory for the study of urban affairs. An 
in-depth look at the initial year of the University's Baltimore 
Urban Term was presented in the summer 1974 issue of the 
Alumnus. 

Since then, a total of 5 1 students have participated in the 
program, directed by Boyd Gibson of the SU faculty. Except 
for one year when only two students were involved, each year 
between six and ten students have taken an introductory 
seminar course on campus during the second term and then 
spent the third term living together, working at internship 
assignments, and continuing their studies in Baltimore under 
the tutelage of three adjunct faculty members. 

The students interviewed in 1974 all spoke very highly of 
the Baltimore experience as an important part of their 
college education. In 1980, a survey of alumni who par- 
ticipated in the program reveals an even more striking and 
credible assessment of the value of the Baltimore Urban 
Term 

An attempt was made to gel career information and state- 
ments from 40 alumni (the other 1 1 past-participants are still 
enrolled as SU undergraduates). They were mailed a 
questionnaire, and 16 responses were received. Partial infor- 
mation on 1 1 others was obtained from files in the Alumni 
Office. Of the 27 for whom information is available, 14 are 



currently employed in posts related to their Baltimore in- 
ternship experience, five others are attending graduate 
school in a related field, and another is a 1980 graduate who 
is hopeful of finding a position in her field of study. 

Of the seven working in fields unrelated to the Baltimore 
program, one formerly served in a related area before mak- 
ing a career change, and another is active in volunteer work 
of a related nature. All 1 6 who responded to the survey, even 
four who are not currently engaged in a related activity, 
believe the Baltimore experience has benefited them and urge 
its continuance at the University. 

Three alumni of the program have returned to Baltimore 
since graduation, two of them at the same agency where they 
had served as student interns. 

Jay Faron '74, a member of the first SU-at-Baltimore 
group, is now director of the Youth Diversion Project of 
COIL (Communities Organized to Improve Life), the suc- 
cessor organization to the Community Action Agency of 
Southwest Baltimore with which he interned over six years 
ago. As an undergraduate, he majored in religion but was 
also interested in sociology and psychology and was un- 
decided as to what he would do for a career. Coming from 
Summit, N.J., he had never been exposed to daily life in the 
city before the Baltimore Urban Term. He was impressed 
with how the neighborhoods of Baltimore maintain a sense of 
small community identity in the midst of the metropolis and 
with "the way the people get involved with each other." Now 
he is part of that neighborhood-community spirit, with plans 
to buy a house on Arlington Avenue two blocks from his of- 
fice at 1137 West Baltimore St. 

Faron says he has "learned on the job," but believes his 
Susquehanna education prepared him "in a general sense," 
teaching him "techniques and approaches" and giving him 
the "flexibility" to deal with new situations. Now Faron 
finds himself supervising Susquehanna interns following in 
his footsteps. 

Jill Douglas '80 who interned with the COI L Youth Diver- 
sion Project in 1 979, has now joined the staff as a counselor. 
The sociology major says the Baltimore Urban Term "gave 
me work experience and a head start in learning about the 
city, and helped me clarify my career goals. My experience at 
SU will enable me to continue learning for the rest of my 
life- 
Sociology major Susan Edgren '76 calls the Baltimore 
program "the most valuable experience I had in my college 



studies." She says she "grew up" more in those three months 
than ever before and "made some of the best friendships I 
will ever have." Her internship doing counseling and ad- 
ministrative duties in the Guidance Office of Southwestern 
High School helped her obtain her current post as case 
worker with the Salvation Army in Norristown, Pa. "My in- 
ternship helped me pinpoint job areas that would interest me 
and gave me a realistic view of what my employment would 
entail," Edgren says. "I notice that my college education 
makes me much more ready to read and try to understand 
things I am unfamiliar with than my co-workers who are not 
college graduates." 

Tura Hammarstrom '78, a psychology major, found that 
her internship with the Carter Community Health Center 
was "a good introduction to a mental health outpatient 
facility, a good test of my dedication to the field, and a good 
exposure to urban life." Currently she is an outreach worker 
with the Family Enrichment Program of the Morristown 
(N.J.) Memorial Hospital. While realizing the value of her 
term in Baltimore, Hammarstrom also appreciated the 
"sheltered" quality of the SU campus. "I had opportunities 
to be a 'big fish in a small pond' that a larger school might 
not have offered me," she says. 

Barbara Vierow '78, a communications major, contends 
that her internship as a production assistant at WJZ-TV 
helped her land her current position in station relations at 
Mutual Broadcasting System headquarters in Arlington, Va. 
"Now that I have graduated and had the experience of look- 
ing for a job in my field," she says, "I realize that the more 
'on the job' experience you can collect, the better chance you 
have of obtaining the job you seek." 

Elizabeth Kennerly '80 majored in business administration 
and interned in marketing research with Bon Secours 
Hospital. At the time of her response to our survey she had 
yet to find employment, but she was confident of getting a 
position in hospital administration and marketing. "This 
field usually requires a master's degree, but my practical ex- 
perience is a selling point for me." She believes the Baltimore 
program is "a very useful supplement to the formal educa- 
tion at Susquehanna — it provides first-hand experience, a 
different cultural environment, and an opportunity to learn 
the responsibilities of running a household." 

Obviously, not all alumni find their post-graduation road a 
smooth one. Barbara Geary Graziano '76 served an in- 
ternship in community relations with the Baltimore City 



I Police Department and attended the Baltimore Police 
Academy However, she has since been rejected for employ- 
ment as a Baltimore police officer because of a height re- 
quirement (she's one-quarter inch short of the 5'7" stan- 
Idard) She filed a discrimination suit against the police 
Idepartment. The case has not yet been resolved. 
1 In the meantime, after serving one year as the first female 
Ipolice officer in the Borough of Selinsgrove, the sociology 
{major is changing careers and is in Florida training to 
become a registered nurse. Finding obstacles on her career 
path has not lowered her opinion of her SU education, but 
raised it. She finds she is well-prepared academically for her 
studies at nursing school and is pleased to hear that Sus- 
quehanna has begun cooperation with the Geisinger Medical 
Center in developing a bachelor's degree program in 
anesthesia for nurses. 
1 "The Baltimore experience itself was super," Graziano 
says "I consider it the highlight of my college years. Eight 
other students and I lived and worked together and became 
close friends. We learned to live harmoniously in a city 
neighborhood, budget weekly expenses, study hard, and even 
cook meals!" 

Music education major Dave Bateman '79 interned in the 
public schools and attended professional conferences in 
music therapy, a field in which he maintains an interest while 
beginning his first year as a music teacher at Hemphill 
Elementary School, McDowell County, W.Va. "I was ex- 
posed to many ideas which helped me to see the relationships 
between music and physical, mental, and spiritual health," 
he says. 

"I thought that my main purpose for attending college was 
to obtain a degree so I could teach music," Bateman says. "I 
found much more. I had to choose between prejudice and 
tolerance, between passivity and action, between ignorance 
and understanding. Susquehanna led me to the point where I 
could choose the latter of these — it expanded my world con- 
siderably." He also values the Baltimore "living" experi-

ence — "our 'family' of eight students learned to handle daily 
problems in an adult manner seldom seen in college dor- 
mitories." 

Cheryl Williams Laverty '76, a sociology major, interned 
with the Dismas Halfway House and the Baltimore County 
Department of Juvenile Services. "1 learned certain tech- 
niques which are helpful to me, but I realized I wasn't cut out 
for strict counseling," she says. Laverty earned a master's 
degree in early childhood special education at George 
Washington University and is now working with students 
who have learning disabilities at the Belt Elementary School 
in Montana. "My career is one I never thought I'd pursue 
while I was in college," she says, "but it is related to my 
sociology and liberal arts background. Susquehanna made 
me a well-rounded person and developed my questioning 
nature." She also found that the Baltimore term was her 
"first insight into home management — an excellent one." 

Joan Balde '77, a psychology major, served an internship 
in the psychology and behavioral management departments 
of the Kennedy Center of Johns Hopkins. She believes that 
her academic training and internship experience prepared 
her for experimental research, helped her obtain a position as 
teacher-therapist at the Princeton Child Development In- 
stitute, and supported her subsequent acceptance at the-Uni- 
versity of North Carolina where she is working toward a 
master's degree in special education. 

Now living in Avon, N.J., as an underwriter with Pruden- 
tial Insurance, sociology major Rich Brugger '78 was 
previously a childcare counselor with the Bonnie Brae School 
for Boys. His Baltimore internship was with the West End 
Drug Rehabilitation Clinic. "Susquehanna helped me grow 
inside almost too much to assess," he says, commenting that 
the University fostered his religious commitment. 

"Although the Baltimore program was not directly in- 
strumental in my career path, it was a valuable experience in 
any case," states Tom Dertouzos '76. His internship with the 
city Planning Department "identified a type of work I was 
not suited to and helped me see my own weaknesses and 
strengths, enabling me to set new goals for myself. My Sus- 
quehanna education prepared me well for further schooling." 
A sociology major at SU, Dertouzos studied accounting at 
Rider College and is currently a senior accountant with Ernst 
& Whinney in Lawrenceville, N.J. 

"I am not pursuing a career in my major field 
(psychology)," relates Mary Ann Knapp '77, "but I feel that 
my liberal arts background has benefited me greatly. College 



should teach one the skills of how to learn, not merely the 
skills to obtain a specific job. Susquehanna helped me learn 
to learn, which is the best education one could receive." She 
finds that her Baltimore experience introduced her to city life 
and gave her the knowledge and confidence to survive in 
Washington, DC, where she is a research assistant with the 
Avco Corporation. 

Alice Taylor '79, an English major who interned with 
Lutheran Social Services of Baltimore, is now secretary to 
the assistant bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington, 
D.C. "For me, the Baltimore Urban Term did not help lead 
to a job, but I do not measure the value of the experience by 
my success in the job market. From the group living, I 
learned much that dorm living cannot teach about coopera- 
tion and diplomacy in human relations. From the city living I 
learned much that academic classes cannot teach about the 
dynamics of urban growth and decay. Through the culture 
and ethnicity — the tremendous variety of events and people 
that make up Baltimore — I experienced a vast urban richness 
that Selinsgrove cannot provide. Through my internship, I 
learned that social work was not my vocation. So, although 
my present job has no connection with the Baltimore 
program, my ability to cope with living and working in 
Washington does." 

In the 1974 article, some students expressed dismay and 
disillusionment with the enormous complexity of urban 
problems and the tremendous difficulty of finding solutions. 
It is encouraging to note that this attitude does not appear in 
the responses to the 1 980 survey. These alumni have seen that 
over an extended period of time progress can be made 
through the combined efforts of people working together to 
help themselves. 

For instance, the Hollins Market, former quarters for 
several grocers and a center of community life in Southwest 
Baltimore, was closed, a victim of 1968 riots, when SU stu- 
dents first arrived in 1974. It has since been reopened as the 
home of a community food cooperative which makes a 
crucial contribution to the strength of the neighborhood. 
Also, new construction and historic restoration are renewing 
downtown Baltimore's Inner Harbor area. 

"Survival requires caring," states Dave Bateman. His 
fellow Baltimore alumni show evidence that they have all 
learned that lesson, both professionally and personally. They 
seem to feel indebted to society for the benefits of a college 
education and they are repaying that debt through their work 
and concern for other people.

THAT'S HOW IT WAS 

by EMMETT FREDERICK 

In years past, even as now, summer's end meant renewed vigor on the University 
campus. All activity was eventually to flow toward one purpose — the arrival of the stu- 
dent body for the fall term. 

Selinsgrove awakened from its summer lassitude. Merchants hung out welcome 
signs by displaying orange and maroon Susquehanna pennants, and merchandise 
destined to attract students replaced standard summer wares in store windows and on 
shelves. 

The arrivals, of course, included first-year students, in number more than one- 
fourth of the entire collegiate population. There was a genuine wish on the part of the 
townspeople to make the arrival of the incoming freshman class memorable and their 
stay pleasant, for there were excellent relations maintained between students and resi- 
dents. 

The college administration had bent its efforts, too, to make the transition from 
home to college life as painless as possible. One should remember that in those days the 
young men and women of college age did not possess the independence of thought and 
action that characterizes those of today. Also, Susquehanna was a smaller school than 
now, and there was a closer personal relationship between faculty and administration 
on one hand and the collegians on the other. 

But Susquehanna largely adhered to the college codes of the day. For instance, 
what was expected in conduct and even dress was spelled out for matriculants. Other 
rules and regulations were printed in the Student Handbook, a virtual student Bible 
that was revised annually. A copy was bestowed on each student. Freshmen were re- 
quired to carry their handbook at all times while on campus. 

One of the sports enjoyed by upperclassmen but not listed under any athletic ac- 
tivity was the hazing of freshmen. This was mostly confined to horseplay. Susquehan- 
nans had more good sense than at some other schools where hazing had some unfor- 
tunate, tragic results. 

But there were freshmen who would tell you that upperclassmen were not ones to 
pull their paddles. That, however, was the extent of corporal punishment meted to first- 
year males. 

From the start of the term, freshmen were required to wear orange and maroon 
dinks, which perched atop their heads. This headgear was a compulsory part of the uni- 
form of the day until such time as a football victory over a traditional rival — or some 
other momentous happening — resulted in permission to discard the dinks. 

The most visible frosh initiation was the fall parade from the campus to Market 
Street, where the main rites were performed. This took place at night, and the line of 
march to and from the initiatory site traversed both Pine and Walnut Streets so that a 
number of Selinsgrovers could witness the goings-on. (Those same streets were also 
used for another type of march, one not related to Susquehanna— the parade of hooded 
and sheeted Ku Klux Klansmen en route to their cross burnings on the hill beyond the 
college.) 

A large water fountain graced the center of the Market and Pine intersection. This 
imposing white ornament spouted water which fell back into a basin that encircled its 
base. In earlier times, the fountain served a utilitarian purpose — it was a watering 
trough for the real horse-power that hauled wagons and buggies over the brick-paved 
main street. Later, it was to withstand assults by cars that piled into it. Finally, the 
fountain and the brick roadway went the way of the cigar store wooden Indian when 
the Commonwealth decreed that in the name of progress a ribbon of concrete should be 
unfurled the length of Market Street. 

At the fountain, freshmen were commanded to perform certain routines, such as 
singing, dancing, cheering, etc. The reluctant were persuaded to go into their acts by 
the application of some smartly administered whacks of wooden paddles to their 
posteriors. The fountain became a baptismal font and the frosh were treated to a dunk- 
ing as a reward for their performances before the return march to their dormitory 
quarters. 

Crowds of townspeople along with students jammed the corner sidewalks to laugh 
at the fountain foolishness. 

In the days of which we write, fraternities were seldom dignified with that word 
but were commonly called "frats." The initiation of their pledges was more physical 
than the hazing of freshmen. 

One house sent its pledges through a large storm sewer at night. The men splashed 
their way through puddles of accumulated water, their progress under cover of 
darkness sending rodent inhabitants of the sewer squealing ahead of them. 

Cemetery Hill, behind the Selinsgrove reservoir west of the campus, provided a 
ghostly setting for late night, informal fraternity initiations. One must keep in mind 
that then there were no houses in the immediate vicinity. 

A prospective brother was taken to the cemetery and told to remain there until 
someone came for him. Of course, no one came. After the brothers stole away, 
tombstones of the burial ground formed a backdrop and a place of concealment for 
members who rattled chains, moaned and shrieked to intimidate the initiate. 

Another trick was to deposit a pledge late at night on a lonely road quite a distance 
from the college. He was then given an impossible deadline: too brief a time in which he 
was to find his way back to the fraternity from the unfamiliar area. A variation of this 
was to send an initiate to obtain specified, hard-to-come-by items in virtually barren 
countryside at night. 

But both pledges and freshmen survived to perpetrate the same tricks on next 
year's crop of neophytes.

SU Sports 



by PETER SILVESTRI 



As this is written, it is hot outside. Hotenoughtomakeme 
thankful for my air-conditioned office. They call these the 
"dog days" of August for reasons of which I am unsure The 
almanac tells me that summer is not officially over for 
another month. But on a college campus, the change of the 
seasons does not correspond to the equinoxes. Despite the 
weather and the calendar, something tells methat fall is here. 
That something is the Susquehanna football team, which is 
arriving on campus today to begin pre*season drills. 

This is the time of year when I can't walk through 
Selinsgrove without somebody asking me "How's the team 
going to do this year?" They don't bother to specify "foot- 
ball" team; it seems understood. Questions about Crusader 
prospects in other sports are less frequent. 

I try to give some coherent and informative answer to 
these queries. Usually my response is some version of "better 
than last year," a safe enough guess when the team is winning 
one or two games per season. But i sometimes find myself 
wondering, why is it so important that the SU gridders win? 
Some of these people are quite demanding, as if Sus- 
quehanna "owed" them a winner, as if the University could 
only justify its existence by producing powerhouse football 
teams. 

Football seems to appeal to our aggressive, territorial in- 
stincts The game itself is analogous to a military operation, 
with the two sides employing complex strategy, brute force, 
and an occasional "bomb" in a struggle for "field position " 
This ritualized battle, set in colorful, crowded stadiums, with 
bands and cheerleaders, in (usually) clear and invigorating 
fall weather, makes for an exciting spectacle Some fans 
become so involved that it seems as if their own personal 
sense of self-worth depends on a victory by their team. 

Some aspects of this passion for football seem unfortunate 
to me. Many members of the general public identify a school 
totally in terms of its football team, knowing nothing about 
the character and purpose of the institution, just its record on 
the gridiron. Once while driving a University car through 
Virginia, I was approached at a gas station by two youths 
who seemed curious about Susquehanna. Their one question: 
"What kind of football team do you have?" 

Even among people in the news media, who ought to know 
better, I encounter those who laugh at Susquehanna because 
of our lack of success in football during the past decade. No 
matter that there have been outstanding successes in other 
sports, no matter that enrollment remains high and the 
budget balanced, no matter that SU graduates are leaders in 
business, music, education, and other fields. To these people, 
if your football team is a loser, you are a loser. 

Whatever happened to the old saying that what matters is 




Head Football Coach Bill Moll is Hanked by this year's 
team leaders, elected by the squad: Co-captains Rick 
Gentile '81, offensive guard from Metuchen. N.J., and 
Tom O'Neill '81, quarterback from West Reading, Pa. 



not whether you win or lose, but how you play the game? 
Surely, as SU's Jim Taylor puts it, "if winning weren't im- 
portant, they wouldn't keep score." But I can't subscribe to 
the Lombardi credo that "winning is not the most important 
thing, it's the only thing." That viewpoint may apply at the 
professional level, where sport is big business. But it 
shouldn't apply in college athletics, and certainly not at a 
small college like Susquehanna where the educational mis- 
sion is paramount. Unlike some of the "big time" univer- 
sities, which are making headlines these days because of 
revelations about bogus credits and forged transcripts, SU 
does not have athletes masquerading as students, we have 
students who participate in sports 

Not to condone cheating, but one can sympathize with the 
feelings of the Eagles' Dick Vermeil a former UCLA foot- 
ball coach, who lays the blame for academic violations on 
college administrators who "hire and fire football coaches on 
the basis of wins and losses ." Some might argue that Sus- 
quehanna is guilty of firing coaches for losing, but I don't 
think that was the reason a few SU coaches have lost their 
jobs. Rather, their programs were not regarded as com- 
plementing overall University goals. 

The athletic philosophy at Susquehanna is that the 
program exists to provide students with the opportunity to 
benefit from the experience of athletic competition. These 
benefits involve learning how to set goals and how to work 
toward attaining them through self-improvement, effort, dis- 
cipline, and teamwork — as well as the pure and simple joy of 
playing the game and sharing fellowship with teammates 
Victory percentage remains one way to measure the success 
of this type of program, but I hope it is not the only way 

To be sure, winning teams can generate a lot of favorable 
publicity which enhances the development of the institution. 
But this is serendipitous Making headlines is not the 
primary goal of the athletic program, which is contributing 
to the personal development of the student-athlete and the 



extracurricular life of the campus i think most educators 
and psychologists would agree that teaching young people 
the virtues ol hard work and a positive attitude is healths 
placing them under intense pressure to win at ali costs is not 

The true fan in this atmosphere is not the "fair weather 
friend" who only supports you when you're w inning but one 
who takes a personal interest in the welfare and developmen 
of the student-athletes and who is always supportive o 
honest effort no matter what the final score. 

Such a fan is Dr. Russell Gilbert h'}l, professor emeril,. 
of German, who is a 1980 SU Sports Hall of Fame inductee 
along with footbal! star Rich Caruso '65 and Ihree-sporl 
standout R«iss EtsetmbweVWJJr SJflbetf has beei 
sports fan for some 50 year. He views his support of Crusauer 
teams as pari of his intense personal and emoliona 
ment in the affairs ol the University. During his half-centurv 
at Susquehanna, his interest has remained as avid during los 
ing years as during seasons of fantastic success He has come 
to know many players, shown his concern by attending prac- 
tice sessions as well as games, and says he "feels person..;:, 
licked when SU loses." But he does not complain about the 
defeats, does not belittle players for poor performances or 
seek the heads of losing coaches, and does not ask for pre- 
season predictions. His devotion to Susquehanna does noi 
depend on wins and losses. 

There is another thing 1 wonder about when people ask me 
"How's the team going to do this year?" What makes them 
think I know? People expect sports writers to be prognosti 
cators, but I don't like it. I can try to provide an analysis of 
the situation: the strengths and weaknesses of the corr- 
petitors, the past records and historical trivia, up-to-date 
statistics. But I am usually too impressed by the unknown 
and variable factors — injuries, motivation, weather condi 
tions, bad bounces— to venture a prediction. Even the 
professional odds-makers, who make it a full-time job am! 
employ an army of scouts, spies, and computer analysts, are 
right iust a little more than half the time 

Two ol my past predictions are noteworthy During my 
days at The Hartford Times 1 was forced to call the 19S" 
World Series. In a grossly unscientific manner. I figured the 
"Miracle" Mets would pull off one more miracle, and the* 
made me look good. In I97S, with theCrusader eleven losing 
only five starters from a 4-5-1 team that had been six point> 
shy of 7-2, 1 wrote that "a 9-0 record is possible ' Welostoui 
first six games. I became the butt of jokes in press boxes 
throughout the Middle Atlantic Conference. I tried to laugh 
them off by saying "it was a misprint, I meant 0-9." Then we 
won the last three games, and I was wrong either way. 

So, I'm sorry, but you won't find any predictions here. The 
pertinent facts are these: Third-year Coach Bill Moll loses 
only, five starters from last year's 2-7 squad. The defense- 
should be strong, as it was in 1979. The attitude remains 
positive and the motivation is there. But, we're still playing in 
perhaps the toughest small college football league in the 
country, and it remains to be seen whether the SU offense 
can be more effective than last year, when it managed more 
than one touchdown only once in nine outings. Make your 
own predictions if you wish. I'm just going to wait and see, 
and enjoy the action no matter what the scoreboard says 



Living in Your 
Kind of Place ?

have never heard of it. Canyon is sand- 
wiched between a reservoir and two parks, 
so it's secluded. The next town, a more 
typical California suburb, is five miles away. 

Barret lives in a wood house "built like a 
cabin. It's rustic. Not quite livable-looking." 
Living in Canyon allows her to have ani- 
mals, a garden, peace and quiet, real neigh- 
bors, and other things she values— such as 
the opportunity to be a school-board member 

"1 wouldn't be working this kind of 
technical job if I didn't live in a nontechnical 
place like this," she says. She grew up in a 
small town in northern New Jersey and 
always lived in places with small-town at- 
mospheres She attended small colleges 
Canyon reminds her of her grandparents' 
cabin in a small, upstate New York town. So 
even 3,000 miles from where she grew up. she 
feels very much at home. 

Phil Kavits look the more typical ap- 
proach to finding a place to live; he didn't 
worry about it at all Kavits wanted most of 
all to be a producer or a news director for a 
television news program When he gradu- 
ated from college two years ago. there 



weren't any job openings for him in the East, 
but that didn't bother him. "I was willing to 
go where I could to do what 1 wanted to do." 
he says. Opportunity beckoned from North 
Dakota, and kavits answered. 

From a career standpoint, it was abso- 
lutely the right move. Kavits advanced with 
astonishing speed. Within a year, he had 
achieved his goal — he was executive pro- 
ducer for a television station in Fargo. Now. 
with valuable experience under his belt, he 
has returned east to a television station in 
Buffalo, New York. Along the way, a sur- 
prising realization struck him. 

"I would've thought I would be more at 
home in Buffalo." says Kavits, a product of 
Long Island. "But Fargo worked out better 
by far. 1 had the best successes ever there, in 
terms of everything. Those things that hap- 
pened in Fargo just haven't happened here. I 
would've thought just the opposite* 

If there's a moral to that story, it is this: 
Maintain your capacity for surprise. As 
important as planning and goal-setting are, a 
little elasticity can go a long way. Goals and 
priorities do have a way of changing. 

One recent grad had decided that Ithaca. 
New York, was precisely the right place for 
his first job. It was close to large cities yet 
retained the ambience of a college commu- 
nity. One factor he hadn't counted on was 



being unable to land the job he sought. 
Instead he was forced to take a position in 
Vermont, which initially left him with a 
feeling of failure. "In many ways," he says 
now. "Vermont was one of the best things 
that ever happened to me. especially because 
of a few of the people I met. They have given 
me values that are as important as anything I 
have known. And I thought going up there 
was the worst thing that could happen to 
me." 

Sometimes wisdom amounts to knowing 
which waves to ride. 

For many a recent graduate, though, the 
first year or two out is a rough voyage. Life 
after commencement begins with with- 
drawal symptoms, like a birth trauma 
upon leaving the comfortable womb of alma 
mater. Being in an unfamiliar or uncom- 
fortable place is one common aspect of this 
difficult adjustment. What can you do to 
make a selling more pleasant? 

"Try to continue the things you've always 
done." says Phil Kavits. who found success 
and happiness in North Dakota. "If you 
were involved in theater, go out and find a 
group and get involved. If you played on 
some kind of team, go out and find some- 
thing similar. Anything to feel natural in 
your new place " 

Rituals help --either maintaining old ones 



or inventing new ones. Brian Martinson, 
who works in Washington, D.C., and misses 
the college environment, has developed a 
regular habit that expands his world beyond 
the confines of his job. Every Sunday 
morning, Martinson takes the newspaper 
and a thermos of coffee and walks along the 
stream near his apartment to a huge rock. He 
says the place reminds him of the scene in the 
movie Breaking Away, where the boys had a 
special rendezvous spot. "Everything lets 
loose there," Martinson says. "You can talk 
or think about anything there. It's safe. You 
hang out on the rock, soak up the sun, and 
read about the world. I feel at home there " 

Career counselor David Anderson cites 
the importance of finding allies people 
who have values and interests similar to 
yours. Many colleges have alumni organi- 
zations and parents' groups willing to ac- 
quaint graduates with the area. Another 
approach might be to pursue things thai 
interest you. "If I really enjoy canoeing. I'm 
going to go on the office canoe trip even 
though 1 may not like where they're going/ 
he says. Or if furniture refinishing interests 
you. check the Yellow Pages for people in 
town who do refinishing work — and call 
them up to ask about making a visit. 

In any case, says Anderson, meeting allies 
involves a "personal investment" on your 



FALL 1980 SUSQUEHANNA ALUMNUS Page 13 



part. "Il involves stepping out rather than 
waiting for people to come to you. Ask 
yourself. 'Where would people be who have 
the same interests as I do?' If it's important 
enough to you, you make that kind of 
personal investment. If you're not acting on 
it. it's not that important to you." 

"It's very tough to get to know someone 
outside the job." says New York City 
survivor Mary Ellen Hem. Her sugges- 
tions find a roommate in a similar predic- 
ament; get to know your ropmmate's,fneo4s^ 
and your friends' friends: reestablish ties 
with classmates you haven't seen recently. 

"It has been incredibly lonely But." she 
adds, "being lonely is important to your 
postgraduate years Loneliness teaches you 
to live with yourself You have to face 
yourself before you expand your ground 

"You always have to ask yourself. 'What 
am I doing here'' What do I think is real?"

cuse University, is a newspaper reporter

Making Lemonade 
From Lemons 



Maybe a few months from now you'll be 
living somewhere else. But meanwhile, 
your present happiness depends on making 
the most of where you are. Here are a few 
tips from graduates to help you find the 
best that any locale can offer and to help 
you feel a bit more at home. 

1. Try to expand your circle of friends 
beyond those at work. It is surprising how 
narrow you and the world can become 
after a year of talking only about office 
politics. 

2. Take advantage of every opportunity to 
meet people you may enjoy. Look at it this 
way: If you do take the initiative, you don't 
really know what will happen. If you don't 
take the first step, you can be pretty sure 
nothing will. 

3. Continue to be involved in activities 
you've always participated in. Softball and 
modern dance classes have not been can- 
celed because you graduated from college. 

4. Seek out allies. Get to know people who 
have the same interests as you do. Ask that 
magic question: "1 enjoy 



Do you know anyone who is involved in 
that?" 

5 Make the personal investment of the 
social interview. Call up strangers who 
have the same hobbies you do and ask to 
talk with them about their interests. 

6 Contact your college's local alumni 
association. Members of college parents' 
groups may be happy to show you around. 

7. Look for a roommate. You will auto- 
matically double your possibilities for 
fnends. 

8. Read the calendar and list of events in 
your local newspaper. It's amazing what 
people spend their free time doing. In a 
smalltown, you may have to be flexible. In 
a city, you'll be overwhelmed. 

9 Go out and get lost. The uncertain will 
no longer be that uncertain. 
10. Take a night course at a local college. 
The room will be filled with people who 
share the same interest as you. And 
dazzling your fnends with Chinese food or 
your newly acquired knowledge ol local 
architecture never hurt. 

11 Carry on those common ntuals that 
were important to you when you were 
vounger 

12 Don't be afraid to be alone. Solitude 
teaches you to live with yourself. It's 
different from loneliness. Sooner or later 
u * something you'll have to face. After you 

j ha\c mastered it, you'll wonder how you 
I e\er got along without it.

director. Edward J. Malloy. is seeking help 
from alumni in three separate ways. 

First. Malloy says it would be of great help 
to students if alumni would spend some 
lime — even a short half-hour would be time 
enough in many instances — talking to them 
about their jobs. Most college students don't 
really know what certain occupations or jobs

versity. This staff position has been added in 
response to the recent growth of the Univer- 
sity s athletic program, which now encom- 
passes 16 varsity sports, and other demands

are like; they need to find out so they can 
make intelligent decisions. Sometimes, he'd 
like to see students invited to spend an entire 
day in the office of an alumnus or alumna. 
Geography should not inhibit this process, he 
says, as students can travel at term breaks 
and vacations. 

Malloy also asks alumni to consider tak- 
ing students on as interns in their offices or 
businesses. Many alumni work in fields that 
can profit from the additional labor provided 
by a student, and the experience makes a fine 
addition to the student's resume'. Employers 
increasingly look for evidence of practical 
experience on the part of students. 

finally, he says that alumni should "think 
Susquehanna" when looking for people to 
fill positions. "With today's economy, we 
can use every available opening for our stu- 
dents." he states. His office can provide in- 
terviewing facilities on campus, or can make 
resume's available on the employer's ground. 

\V illing-to-help alumni should contact 
Malloy at Susquehanna University.

keep alive memories of your college days. 
You'll find that these intricately detailed 
etchings will grace your home or office for years 
to come. And they make fine gifts, too, for 
anytime giving. 

Deep etched in solid bronze and mounted on 
richly grained, hand-rubbed walnut, the overall 
size of each etching (including walnut) is 9" x 
12" and they are delivered ready for immediate 
display. 

Order your etchings now and have one or both 
of these nostalgic mementos to bring back those 
treasured years at Susquehanna. Special

Annual Giving 
Exceeds Goal 

The University's annual giving program, 
the Susquehanna University Fund, es- 
tablished a new record during 1979-80 for 
the fifth consecutive year. As of the June 30 
closing date, almost 3000 donors contributed 
$304,277 for the twelve-month period, 
thereby eclipsing last year's record total of 
$283,000. More than 2400 gifts came from 
alumni of Susquehanna, representing almost 
30 percent participation. 

Alumni— 2756 of them — were contacted 
by telephone in a series of Telethons con- 
ducted by Roland C. Blakeslee '80, a 
Development Office intern Pledges totaling 
$32,131 from 1499 persons were obtained in 
this manner. 886 from first-time donors. A 
total of 157 students took part in the 
Telethons. 

Gifts to SUF are used for current opera- 
tions and are budgeted to assist the Univer- 
sity in balancing its $9 million operating 
budget. 

A complete report, with statistics and the 
names of donors to the 1979-80 SUFund,

WHAT MAKES MOVIE DIALOGUE GOOD? 

by RICHARD KAMBER W32H 



I. A Misspent Youth 

Lei me begin with a public confession. When I was a boy 
growing up in the suburban resort town of Asbury Park. New 
Jersey, I fell pre; to the sinister temptation of cinematic ad- 
diction Seduced, in part, by the cut-rate prices that were 
available during the off-tourist season, and egged on in my 
tell) bj "is that proclaimed that "movies are better than 
ever," 1 became a hapless habitue of local movie houses. 
i rom the lender age of eight or nine until 1 entered high 
school, I spent countless hours in dark balconies watching 
double features, multiple serials, and innumerable cartoons. 
M> p, i re n Is were nul altogether happv with this state of af- 
fairs They would have preferred to see me outside in the 
fresh air, playing slickball or climbing trees. But since they 
realized that I might choose to spend my time at home, in- 
stead of at the movies, they resigned themselves to subsidiz- 
ing the lesser of two evils. 

Years later, when 1 came to see the error of my former 
ways, 1 embarked upon a course of self-improvement. For a 
decade or so, I scrupulously avoided Hollywood productions, 
and attended only the most esoteric of foreign films. My 
premise, I suppose, was that directors like Bergman, Bunuel, 
and Anlonioni could cleanse me of Victor Mature. Cecil B. 
de Mille. and Bugs Bunny. It was not. however, until 1 



arrived at the gates of Susquehanna, that I felt a need for 
radical absolution. Too embarrassed to bother the Chaplain 
with so trilling a matter. I decided to seek counsel from my 
own conscience. Regrettably, my conscience proved unsym- 
pathetic. Like Luther's confessor at Wittenberg, it advised 
me to desist from moral anguish until I had a worthier sin to 
report. I protested that the opportunities for sinning in 
Selinsgrove were pretty limited, and I reminded my con- 
science of Plato's remark "that if a contest were held for 
wickedness, few would distinguish themselves, even there ." 
But to no avail. 

My big break in movies came in 1975, when Ron Dotterer 
[Ronald E. Dotterer, assistant professor of English] and I 
decided to offeran experimental course called INTRODUC- 
TION TO FILM. Here, at last, was an opportunity to 
transform the haphazard recollections of a misspent youth 
into a pool of information for academic use. The course 
proved quite successful and led, in turn, to a major grant 
from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the es- 
tablishment of an outstanding feature film library, and the 
founding of the Susquehanna University Film Institute. Last 
year, my film-teaching colleagues and I received the ultimate 
token of providential favor, when the Susquehanna Univer- 
sity Parents Association initiated a fund-raising campaign to

purchase films, projectors, and videocassette equipment for 
film-study activities. 

II. A Question of Educational Value 

For me the success of the film program at Susquehanna 
represents a vindication of movies as a cultural phenomenon 
worthy of serious attention and critical appreciation. There 
are. however, some hard-bitten skeptics who would question 
this view, and who might, in their meaner moments, accuse 
me of compounding my childhood sins by dragging movies 
off the streets and into the classroom. The real issue, of 
course, is the educational value of humanities/film courses. I 
exclude from this category courses on how to make films. 
My friend Joe Muscato in the Communications Department 
teaches FUNDAMENTALS OF FILM PRODUCTION, 
and 1 think it is clear what his course is designed to accom- 
plish. But courses such as FILM AND CULTURE IN 
EUROPEAN HISTORY, FILM AND LITERATURE, 
and INTRODUCTION TO FILM are a bit more 
mysterious. They do not teach students how to make films, 
but deal instead with how and why professional films are 
made, or explore the interrelations between cinema and other 
forms of cultural expression. There is no question that stu- 
dents come out of these courses knowing more than they did 
when they went in. What may be questioned is the kind of 
knowledge that students acquire and the purpose of that 
knowledge. 

Paradoxically, humanities/film courses often use film to 
teach students about things other than film. In this respect, 
films serve as cultural artifacts for studying important 
historical events like the Russian revolution, the great 
depression, and the rise of Nazi Germany; or they serve as 
popular exemplars against which to measure the distinctive 
qualities of other art forms like literature, painting and 
music. 

But humanities/film courses also teach students about 
films themselves. To fully understand a film, even an or- 
dinary grade-B movie, it is necessary to know something 
about the history, technology, economics, production meth- 
ods, and critical theories of cinema. The primary purpose of 
such knowledge is enjoyment. The more one knows about 
how and why films are made, the greater one's capacity to 
appreciate the successes and failures of cinema at every level. 
It is revealing, for example, to discover that the terrifying 
shower scene in Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho compresses 78 
distinct camera shots into 45 seconds of film. And although

The 
President's 
Window 




As I look out from my office at the beginning of our 1 23rd academic year. I am 
aware that this is a time when Susquehanna may certainly count its blessings. We have 
an historic high in starting enrollment totaling I494 full-time students, and for a 
second successive year our finances are solidly in the black. Equally promising are the 
numbers of new faculty in fields ranging from economics to drama, all splendidly 
prepared and anxious to teach this generation of young men and women. Sus- 
quehanna's greatest blessing, however, has been and continues to be its historic com- 
mitment to expect and achieve the very best from its students. 

Recently former United States Commissioner of Education, and my Dean at Har- 
vard, Francis Keppel commented on the curious way in which many educators, high 
school counselors, and parents seem to judge the quality of undergraduate institutions. 
Most frequently, he observed, they cite the intellectual capacities of the entering class 
as indicated by its performance on the Scholastic Aptitude test. A second hallmark of- 
ten mentioned is the breadth and depth of an institution's curriculum. While both of 
these are useful indices of quality, they but scratch the surface of an institution. The 
former Commissioner thought it would be far more informative and revealing if one 
measured the intellectual growth which took place as the result of the teaching and 
learning accomplished at a given school. 

Such an observation fits well with our traditions at Susquehanna. Admittedly, as 
many of our alumni can happily maintain, the richness and variety of experiences 
which can be drawn from a liberal arts residential university would defy even the most 
sophisticated efforts at quantification. Yet it does seem eminently right that a school 
not only do its best to attract the most able freshmen, but also do its best to foster 
growth to the fullest of their intellectual, moral, and social potential. How well it ac- 
complishes this, then, should provide its best measure of institutional quality. 

To our students, alumni, and friends, as we enter the decade of the '80s, we pledge 
that we will not sacrifice our historic principles to expediency; we will not be distracted 
from our mission by current educational fads; and we will not despair about the con- 
tinuing national decline in the academic qualifications of high school graduates. In- 
stead we will accept the coincidence of challenge and opportunity given to us by our 
lime. We will remember that we are educators who can make a difference in our stu- 
dents, even as Susquehanna professors in the past accomplished so much in the lives of 
those we now count among our alumni. 

We will continue to make a comprehensive effort in the classroom, laboratory, 
salon, library, playing field, and dormitory which will result in truly educated in- 
dividuals who are wiser, healthier, and likely to be of service to others. Surely as we 
begin this year, our greatest blessing is our tradition and the challenge it poses for us.

REPORT FROM THE CLASS OF '80 



Susquehanna University awarded 291 undergraduate degrees 
in 1980. The annual query Irom the Alumni Office brought 182 
responses with inlormation about where these younger alumni 
are living and working or studying — that's a 62.45 percent 
response, slightly under last year's. But the patterns are 
rather similar: 68 are in Pennsylvania, 31 in New Jersey, 
and 21 in New York. Maryland claims 6 and 3 each are in 
Connecticut, Massachusetts, Ohio, and Virginia. Then there 
are 2 each in Oklahoma, North Carolina, and Washington, DC. 
The rest are scattered over the country. As lor occupations, 
88 are in business, banking, or insurance, at least 31 are 
doing graduate study, 17 in teaching, 12 in accounting, 9 in 
computers, 5 in service-related fields and 5 in the armed 
service, 4 in radio and 4 in science-related work.

What Makes Movie 
Dialogue Good?

we never see a single shot of direct contact between knife and 
body, Hitchcock's rapid-fire editing produces an overwhelm- 
ing sense of violence. (Incidentally, the naked body that we 
glimpse in the shower belonged to a professional model, not 
to Janet Leigh, and the shadowy figure wielding the knife was 
not Tony Perkins, but a stand-in for Perkins.) Instructive in a 
different way is the curious fact that the parts of Ilsa and 
Rick in Casablanca, played so memorably by Ingrid 
Bergman and Humphrey Bogart, were originally intended, 
not for Bergman and Bogart, but for Ann Sheridan and . . . 
Ronald Reagan. 

Having responded to one group of critics, I may now be in 
trouble with another. For those who take a puritanical view 
of education are likely to be unhappy with my reference to 
enjoyment as a primary purpose for film study in its own 
right. "Enjoyment," they might say, "is at best an accidental 
by-product of extracurricular activities." So, I shall try to ex- 
plain briefly why I regard enjoyment as one of the legitimate 
goals of our academic program. 

If someone were to ask me to name the single most dis- 
tinctive characteristic of Susquehanna students, I know what 
my response would be. Although "brains," "beauty," and "a 
deep respect for their professors" might all be good answers, 
1 would choose instead "amiability." With remarkably few 
exceptions, the students I have known at Susquehanna dur- 
ing 14 years of teaching have been extremely nice people. 
They may have a beer too many on Saturday night, or fail to 
do their reading assignments for Monday morning, but they 
are the kind of people about whom one cares and with whom 
one likes to be. Thus, personally, as well as professionally, I 
feel obligated to do what I can to help these students achieve 
productive, compassionate, and rewarding lives. I want them 
to succeed as job-holders and professionals, as spouses and 
parents, as citizens and community leaders. But I also want 
them to succeed in their rightful quest for personal hap- 
piness. One very small way of supporting that quest is by of- 
fering a few courses which help students to increase their 
critical appreciation of movies. 

III. The Neglected Problem ol Movie Dialogue 

As an illustration of what I mean by "thecritical apprecia- 
tion of movies," I should like to develop a few thoughts on 
the subject of movie dialogue. This is not something that I 
have discussed in my films classes yet, but it is something 
that interests me, and I hope will interest my students as well. 

Although the spoken word has been a constant companion 
of film for over 50 years, film critics and theorists have had 
surprisingly little to say about the proper role of movie 
dialogue. The best-known view is that of Rudolph Arnheim. 
Arnheim contends that spoken words and moving pictures 
are artistically incompatible. If dialogue is intermittent it 
spoils itself; if it is continuous, then it spoils the visual impact 
of film. Unlike theater and opera, says Arnheim, movies are 
incapable of striking an effective balance between what is 
said and what is seen. The true art of the motion picture was 
lost when talkies replaced silent movies. 

Other film theorists take more moderate stands, but all 
agree on the primacy of sight over sound, and most concede 
that movie dialogue is at its best when it is at its least ob- 
trusive. According to the majority, the proper role of movie 
dialogue is either to help complete the viewer's sense of 
reality (Bazin), or to help advance a story-line (Kracauer). It 
would seem, therefore, that specific qualities of dialogue 
don't matter much, as long as they don't compete or interfere 
with what is happening on the screen. But I find these views 
inadequate. 

IV. Sllentt and Talkie* 

By way of clarification, let me point out that what is at 
issue here is not sound as such, but spoken words. The so- 
called silent movies were in fact never silent; they were 
always accompanied by music, and sometimes by sound ef- 
fects as well. Even the humblest nickelodians had pianos, the 
better theaters organs, and some of the great movie houses 
full orchestras. Many early theaters employed a device 
known as the "allefex machine" toenrich background music 
with sound effects, and a few movie houses experimented 
with live singers. As film historian Gerald Mast has pointed 
out. even the name "silent movies" was an afterthought. 
"Before the movies talked, the audience simply thought of 
silent' movies as movies, or films, or motion pictures, or 
photoplays— not as silent films. . . . For an industry 
marketing its new wares, 'silent film' was [deliberately] 
pejorative— that dull, old, outmoded thing that you folks 
don't want to pay good money to see anymore." 1 



The first talking picture to integrate speech with fictional 
action was produced in 1927 by a small, impoverished studio 
called "Warner Brothers." That film, The Jazz Singer, star- 
ring Al Jolson, created an irresistible demand for talkies. 
Within two years the silent film was virtually dead in Amer- 
ica. Motion pictures had become talking pictures, and the 
victory of synchronized dialogue was celebrated both on and 
off the screen. 

The most remarkable thing about the emergence of talkies 
was the speed and finality with which they came to dominate 
the film industry. This is all the more impressive when one 
considers that the adoption of synchronized sound required 
major retooling by every studio and the purchase of sound 
equipment by every movie theater. No other technological 
development in the history of film — neither color, nor wide 
screens, nor the ill-fated 3D process — can claim the same 
measure of imperial success. In recent years, only zany Mel 
Brooks has had the chutzpah to produce a feature-length 
silent movie. And even the Brooks film, suggestively titled 
Silent Movie, dilutes its purity with a single word of dia- 
logue. When asked in the film whether he would be willing to 
appear in a feature-length silent movie, the famous panto- 
mimist, Marcel Marceau, speaks a one word answer: 
"Non!" 

V. The Goodness Factora of Movie Dialogue 

Since both film-makers and film-audience have insisted, 
for half a century, on the inclusion of dialogue in movies, it 
should be worthwhile to try to name the factors that make 
movie dialogue good or bad. Admittedly, this is a task that 
could be carried out with various degrees of precision: one 
could try to name all the relevant factors or just the most im- 
portant. My intent is rather modest. I should like to sketch 
what I consider to be the three most important factors — or 
"quality variables" — of movie dialogue. Two of the three are 
obvious. The third, however, is somewhat unusual, and, 
therefore, needs to be singled out for special attention. 

Mindful that any thesis ought to be augmented with ap- 
propriate visual aids, I have constructed a devilishly in- 
genious diagram. It's called "a triangle." 



PROBABLE GOODNESS 
IN OTHER CONTEXTS 



At the top of my triangle is the factor, or quality variable, 
that I think is most important. In order for moviedialogueto 
be successful it must be compatible with the rest of the film. 
If the story of the film is set in Victorian England, then the 
characters should sound like English Victorians. If a par- 
ticular character is an uneducated laborer, then his vocabu- 
lary and manner of speaking should fit his background and 
occupation. If the film is an action film with no special 
emphasis on social or intellectual issues, then the dialogue 
should be brief and to the point. If the film is comic, then the 
dialogue should be funny — at least in the context of the film. 
If the film is tragic, then the dialogue should help sustain a 
sympathetic mood. Realistic films should have realistic 
dialogue, while films that depart from realism may choose to 
adopt, or even require, appropriately stylized dialogue. 

I doubt very much whether anyone could draw up a de- 
pendable set of rules for guiding screenwriters or directors in 
the selection of compatible dialogue. Movies, like other 
works of art, are unique constructions which require on-the- 
spot judgments and individual craftsmanship. Movies are 
shaped like a pot on a potter's wheel, not like a piece of Com- 
ing Ware on an assembly line. Nevertheless, there are certain 
standards of form and unity which, if neglected by film- 
makers, are bound to be remembered by film critics and 
audiences. It may be hard to anticipate flaws and blemishes 
during production, but it is fairly easy to see them in the 
finished product, and they tend to look bigger with the 
passage of time. There are few people today who can sit 
without cringing through that moment in Cecil B. De M ille's 
1956 version of The Ten Commandments when Anne Baxter 
says to Charlton Heslon, "Moses, Moses, you splendid, 
stubborn, adorable fool." 

Kamber's first law of movie dialogue is that in order for 
dialogue to be good as movie dialogue it must be compatible 
with the rest of the film. Kamber's second law is that such 
compatibility is not sufficient to make movie dialogue good. 
If the rest of the film happens to be dull, trite, inane, or 
otherwise defective, then the dialogue that supports it will be 
tainted with the same unhappy qualities. Call this, if you will, 
the Catch-22 of cinematic compatibility: if the dialogue isn't 



WINTER 19S1 SUSQUEHANNA ALUMNUS Page 3 

compatible then it can't be good as movie dialogue; if it is 
compatible, and the rest of the film is poor, then the dialogue 
will almost certainly be poor as well. 

The second major factor, or quality variable, is the 
probable goodness of that dialogue in other contexts. If the 
dialogue contained in a film has qualities that would 
probably make it good if used in other contexts — in a poem 
or play perhaps, in a novel or short story, in a speech or es- 
say, in a comedy routine, or just in everyday conversation — 
then those qualities will enhance the value of that dialogue as 
movie dialogue, just as long as they do not diminish the com- 
patibility of that dialogue with the rest of the film. The 
clearest illustrations of this principle can be found among 
successful film versions of outstanding plays. The best adap- 
tations of Shakespeare and George Bernard Shaw, of Oscar 
Wilde, Ibsen, and Eugene O'Neill gain enormously from the 
poetic, dramatic, and comic qualities of the dialogue used in 
these films. The lines spoken in such productions have a 
value which transcends their immediate contribution to the 
film in which they occur. They are lines worth remembering, 
or quoting, or hearing again in some other context. To a 
lesser extent, the same may be said of successful film adapta- 
tions of other literary works and a great many films that con- 
tain bits and pieces of original dialogue with similar qualities. 
I don't want to give you the impression that what I am 
talking about here is restricted to movies with philosophic 
themes or literary pedigrees. Although sustained excellence 
in this category is most common among films that borrow 
their dialogue from exceptional works of literature, the prize 
for numerical superiority goes to movie comedies. A fre- 
quent characteristic of successful comic films is the use of 
dialogue that would be entertaining, laughable, or witty, if 
heard in other contexts. To appreciate the scope of this prac- 
tice, one need only think of the Marx brothers' movies, the 
droll comedies of Ernst Lubitsch, the screwball comedies of 
Howard Hawks, and the neurotic masterpieces of Woody 
Allen. 

By the same token, many films that are not essentially 
comedies make use of dialogue that would be amusing or 
witty, if heard in other contexts. In Peter Yate's gentle, 
human-interest film, Breaking Away, Dennis Christopher's 
hard-working father, Paul Dooley, expresses disgust with his 
son's easy-going ways: I approximately ) "I don't know what's 
wrong with that boy. He's never tired, he's never miserable. 
When I was young, / was tired and miserable." Later on in 
the film, when the boy has been cheated and injured by his 
idols, the Cinzano bicycle team, his father tells him: "I didn't 
want you to be that miserable. A little was all I asked for." 
Kamber's third and fourth laws of movie dialogue read as 
follows: (Third) Other things being equal, it is always an ad- 
vantage for movie dialogue to have qualities that would 
probably make it good if used in other contexts. (Fourth) 
Nevertheless, dialogue that lacks such qualities may still be 
good or even excellent as movie dialogue, if certain special 
conditions obtain. The simplest case of this kind is classic 
Hollywood palaver. Many of the films made in Hollywood 
between about I930and I960 employed a studio-grown style 
of dialogue which, despite its scarcity of external virtues, 
served admirably to perpetuate what Michael Wood has 
called "a licensed zone of unreality." 

Here are two brief passages from Michael Wood's 
delightful study of Hollywood's golden age of sound, 
America in the Movies. 

Tyrone Power is a dashing young cadet at the Madrid 
military academy. We see him excelling on horseback 
and at sword practice, and at the end of a busy morning 
of demonstrating his prowess, he is approached by a 
fellow student, who says, "Have you forgotten that you 
are to cross swords today with Captain Fulano at three 
o'clock this afternoon?" Power slaps his forehead 
theatrically with the flat of his hand, and says, "Santa 
Maria, it had slipped my mind." The gesture and the ex- 
clamation would be ludicrous in a play or a novel, and 
would be comic in a film of any serious pretensions. 
Where they are, though, in Rouben Mamoulian's The 
Mark of Zorro (1940), they are perfect, just what is 
needed. 



There is no irony there, just a modest excess of style; 
and this it seems to me, is something like Hollywood's 
signature in cinema. This is not life the signature says, 
and it is not art, not realism, not even fantasy. It is the 
movies, an independent universe, self-created, self- 
perpetuating, a licensed zoneof unreality, affectionately 
patronized by us all, the only place in the world where 
anyone says, "Santa Maria, it had slipped my mind." 1 

Now, before it slips my mind, let me mention that the third 
factor, or quality variable, of movie dialogue is the contribu- 
tion that such dialogue makes to the moral, social, psy- 
chological, or intellectual issues of a film. By "contribution" 



Page 4 SUSQUEHANNA ALUMNUS WINTER 198/ 




Christmas decorations? Well, no, it was actually Hallowe'en, which occurred over 

Parents Weekend, when several dozen campus trees turned up testooned with toilet paper. 



I mean something more lhan the conventional role that 
dialogue plays in helping a movie tell a story, which may, in 
turn, raise thematic issues. Contributions of that sort belong 
to our first variable, cinematic compatibility. Likewise, I do 
not mean the capacity of intellectually stimulating dialogue 
to pose questions and answers that stand apart from the dis- 
tinctive way in which they are spoken by the characters in the 
film. Such contributions belong to the second variable. The 
contributions that I refer to now are of a different order. 
They occur when the linguistic habits or capabilities of the 
central characters in a film contribute directly to the social, 
moral, psychological, or intellectual problems with which the 
character in that film must cope. One could, 1 suppose, call 
these integral contributions of the third kind. 

Although relatively few films use dialogue in this special 
way, those that do, frequently do so with remarkable success. 
Among the films that qualify for this description are 
"learning-to-talk films," such as Asquilh's Pygmalion 
(1938), Cukor's Burn Yesterday (1951), Penn's The Miracle 
Worker ( 1962), Cukor's My Fair Lady (the musical version 
of Pygmalion: 1964), and Nelson's Charly (1968). An even 
more impressive group are films that exemplify failures or 
breakdowns of verbal communication. 1 would count among 
the members of this group, Bergman's The Silence (1963). 
Kubrick's 2001 (1968), Coppola's The Conversation (1974). 
Cimino's The Deer Hunter (1978), Allen's Manhattan 
(1979), and possibly Fellini's La Slrada (1956). Almost in a 
class by itself is Howard Hawks's His Girl Friday (1940), a 
cynical lour deforce in which words are used like weapons to 
vanquish the awkward mumblings of traditional morality. 

Kamber's fifth law 1 of movie dialogue asserts that the sur- 
est way for compatible dialogue in a good film to excel as 



movie dialogue is by contributing — in the manner described 
above — to the broad issues of the film. To help prove my 
point, I'll borrow some ideas from an article I wrote for The 
Cresset on Michael Cimino's controversial film The Deer 
Hunter.' I choose The Deer Hunterbccauseof the power and 
centrality of its minimal dialogue. 



The material which follows is paraphrased 
and reprinted by permission ot The Cresset. 
Valparaiso University, Valparaiso, Indiana. 

Without sacrificing the individuality of its characters, The 
Deer Hunter gives us more than a sympathetic portrait of 
provincial steelworkers; it gives an artful depiction of one of 
America's least vocal minorities from an axiological 
perspective remarkably similar to their own. The Deer 
Hunter is a film about poverty, but the poverty that afflicts 
characters of this movie is a poverty of words, rather than a 
poverty of material resources. Whatever the causes of their 
privation, these robust men and women seem to lack the 
linguistic wherewithal to articulate their deepest concerns, 
convictions, perceptions, and doubts. Language for them is 
not so much a means of communication as an obstacle to 
communication. 

The depth of this verbal poverty does not become evident 
until the middle of the film — after Mike's return from Viet- 
nam. The dialogue that we hear during the first hour of the 
picture is simple and coarse, but it seems roughly adequate to 
meet the needs of the speakers. Toward the end of the first 
Vietnam sequence, we watch Nick reduced to speechlessness 
by the irksome questions of an insensitive army doctor. Yet 



given ins recent agonies, the larger significanceol Nick's ver- 
bal breakdown remains unclear until we see Angel. i 
(Rulanya A Ida) cowering in bed, helplessly mute inClairton 

The other survivorsdo better, but not much better In spite of 
the emotional bonds that unite them. Mike and Linda have 
enormous difficult) gelling beyond an exchange of 
banalities. 

Outside the supermarket where she works, Linda makes a 
slab ai philosophical dialogue: "did you ever think hie would 
turn out like this * " "No," vhs Mike The dialogue ends, 

Mike's conversations with his male companions arc a bit 
less strained, but jusl as inarticulate. Even with Steve, who 
has shared the worst of Vietnam and owed what is left of his 
life to Mike's heroics, the level of discourse is pitifully low. 
There is, no doubt, a limit to the amount of solace that words 
can provide, but these young people are nowhere near thai 
limit. Before Vietnam intruded on their lives, much of whal 
they lacked in verbal skills was made up by ancillary forms of 
communication. Relying on the protection of familiar 
routines, they filled in the gaps with curses and cliches, facial 
expressions, gestures, rituals, and music. Now. the gap is too 
wide. 

After Nick's funeral, the survivors gather at John's bar for 
breakfast. Except for one brief remark about the weather, 
their entire conversation consists of bland suggestions for 
preparing the meal. They speak of coffee, cups, eggs, toast, 
and beer. Standing alone in the kitchen over a large bowl of 
partially beaten eggs, John — whose special mode of com- 
munication has been a joyfully infectious laugh — starts to 
cry. In a palpable effort to hold back his tears, he begins to 
hum. and then to sing "God Bless America." Though feeble 
at first, his voice gradually regains some of the strength and 
resonance that it had in the wedding choir at St. Theodosius's 
Church. The song is clearly audible in the next room, where 
the rest of the party is now sitting in silence. Linda is the first 
to pick it up. After a moment, the others join in. When the 
song is over, Mike raises his glass: "Here's to Nick." "To 
Nick," the others say. The movie ends. 

Far from being an expression of recalcitrant jingoism, as 
some critics have charged, this final scene seems to me a gent- 
ly ironic depiction of baffled mourners reaching out for 
words that they themselves cannot command. Lacking the 
capacity to articulate the mix of emotions they feel or to for- 
mulate justifications for what has happened to them, 
Michael and his friends fall back upon the simplistic verse of 
a rote-learned school song. The note of affirmation is 
genuine, but what they are affirming is neither the 
geopolitical philosophy behind America's ill-fated involve- 
ment in Vietnam nor some comic book version of "the 
American way." They are affirming whal they can under- 
stand and what, for them, has not changed. The emphasis 
falls upon the last line of the song, "God bless America", my 
home sweet home," with the added qualification that 
"America" is nearly synonymous with the steel mill town of 
"Clairton, Pennsylvania." 



Kamber's sixth and final law of movie dialogue is that all 
of the preceding laws and explanations are valid only insofar 
as Ihey help us to understand and appreciate movies. To the 
extent that they fail in that task, they can and ought to be 
revised. To the extent that they succeed, they assist in 
redeeming a misspent youth.

Masom Mural 
Unveiled at SU 



Dorothy Masom has been a lecturer in 
art at Susquehanna University since I975. 
As a candidate for the M.A. at Bloomsburg 
State College, she executed a 5' x 5' mural 
last summer and has presented it to Sus- 
quehanna's Roger M Blough Learning 
Center. It was unveiled on Parents Day, 
November I. 

An extra special thing about this mural is 
that it is painted in encaustics. The en- 
caustic technique, used extensively in an- 
cient civilizations but rarely experimented 
with today, employs the action of heat to 
fix and seal structural layers of melted 
beeswax and pigment, both during con- 
struction and upon completion of the work. 
The result is a permanency without equal 
and a rich, luminous quality that is unique. 
The original colors endure because there is 
no oil to darken the painting. 

Mrs. Masom is a native of Philadelphia 
and a graduate oflhe Trenton Industrial Art 
School (now part of the Mercer County 
Community College) and Thomas A. Edison 
College. She also has studied at the 
Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and the 
Art Students League. 

She is a woman of many talents. Before 
coming to SU (with husband Richard, assis- 
tant professor of business administration), 
she owned and directed the Woodside Art 
School in Sussex. N.J., where she taught 
drawing, painting, printmaking. walercolor, 
ceramics, art history, pottery, and crafts. 
She also had taught at the J. Scott Pike Art 
School in Vernon and (he Lakeside Art Cen- 
ter in Sparta, both in New Jersey. 

During this lime, Mrs. Masom was gain- 
ing recognition as a professional artist and. 
among others, she painted hundr^ ..I por- 
traits including those of N.J. Gov. Richard J. 
Hughes. Deputy Attorney Robert Solan, op- 



tical scientist Dr. Harry S. Newcomer, and a 
Siamese princess. 

And before then, Dorothy Masom held 
such less artistic but no less interesting posi- 
tions as executive secretary to the engineer- 
ing manager of RCA, assistant personnel 
director of the N.J. State Highway Depart- 
ment, and administrative secretary to the 
Prosecutor of Mercer County in Trenton. In 
the latter post, she was sworn in as Grand 
Jur> Clerk and found her sketches being 
used as evidence in the court room. 

At Susquehanna she is a popular teacher 
whose drawing and painting classes are 



much in demand. In fact, they fill up so 
quickly that many students have to post- 
pone enrolling in them until another term. 
The mural "embodies a sense of purpose 
of the library," according to Kenneth T. 
Wilson, associate professor of art at 
Bloomsburg. "Students are shown studying 
in an atmosphere of contemplation and 
librarians are found intent upon their respec- 
tive duties within this center of learning." He 
added that the Masom work "fits into the 
architectural space of the library wall and 
her fluid style is suited to the contemporary 
pace of Susquehanna University "

At Camp Karoondinha, 
SU's new biology 
field station . . . 



SYLVAN 
STUDIES 




Text and pictures by PETER SILVESTRI 



One of Susquehanna University's most unusual 
classroom-laboratory facilities is located some 25 miles west 
oftheSelinsgrove campus amidst avast tract of state forest. 
There, in the southwestern corner of Union County, lies 
Camp Karoondinha, which last summer began being used by 
the University as a Biology Field Station through a 
cooperative agreement with the Susquehanna Council of the 
Boy Scouts of America, headquartered in Williamsport. 

The 600-acre site offers a perfect combination of ac- 
cessibility and isolation. It is sufficiently "off the beaten 
track" so that traffic and casual passersby are practically 
non-existent. Situated between the little towns of Glen Iron 
and Weikerl, Camp Karoondinha is very hard to find if 
you've never been there before, but not hard to get back to 
once you know the way. From campus, a scenic 40-minute 
ride over paved roads takes you there. However, the pave- 
ment ends at the camp entrance: beyond is virtually un- 
developed land traversed only by dirt roads and logging 
trails The camp grounds encompass part of the Penns Creek 
valley at their lower end and rise to the top of Penns Creek 
Mountain, ranging from 600 to 1800 feet above sea level. 

"This facility gives us a chance to do things we haven't 
been able to do before." says Dr. George C. Boone, associate 
professor of biology. Occasional field trips have always been 
part of the biology program, but use of Camp Karoondinha 
"permits continual access to a permanent area where we can 
do long-term research— we can mark out areas and study 
changes over a period of time," explains Dr. Boone 

"It's a large area with diverse habitats," he notes "\\ ilh 
the valley along the creek and significant change in elevation 



up the mountainside, there is an excellent variety of plants 
and animals and differing environmental situations. 

"I've found species there that I hadn't seen in 20 years," 
exclaims Dr. Boone, who received a Susquehanna Faculty 
Research Grant to spend last summer studying the site in or- 
der to plan for its use as the Biology Field Station and to 
identify possible areas of future research. A specialist in 
plant and animal ecology. Dr. Boone has initiated a personal 
project — a transectional (at various elevations) vegetation 
analysis. 

Also during the summer, he doubled the size of the Univer- 
sity's herbarium (dried plant collection). Camp Karoondinha 
provided 300 new specimens representing some 250 different 
species. In addition to rare flora, such as wild ginger, there is 
a wide range of fauna, including cedar waxwings and scarlet 
tanagers not common to the Susquehanna Valley, as well as 
deer, bear, turkey, and grouse. 

According to Susquehanna's cooperative agreement with 
the Boy Scouts, a University biology student conducts wild 
life and nature study programs for several hundred scouts 
who visit the camp during the summer months. Last year this 
job was filled by Todd Burns '8 1 of Hummels Wharf. Also. 
Dr. Boone serves as a resource person for the Boy Scouts. 
Last summer he assisted in laying out a nature study trail and 
gave biology lectures two evenings per week. 

This fall Dr. Boone's ecology class became the first group 
of SU students to utilize the new Biology Field Station. This 
course involves study of the interrelationships of organisms 
with each other and with their surroundings, including such 
topics as population dynamics, competition for space and 



resources, energy dynamics, and cycling of nutrients. On the 
two days the Alumnus visited, the class engaged in vegetation 
analysis using the technique of quadrat sampling (identifying 
plants within measured plots of standard size) and limnology 
(study of physical, chemical, and biological conditions in 
fresh waters). 

While ecology is the only class to visit the new field station 
so far, future plans include utilization for courses in en- 
tomology and botany and a new course in field biology 
intended primarily for non-science majors. Also envisioned 
as future possibilities are summer programs for high school 
biology teachers and advanced high school students. 
Currently, SU groups can use one of the Boy Scout cabins 
for overnight stays. However, in the future the University 
hopes to obtain funding for construction of a new building to 
serve as a combination cabin and laboratory. This would per- 
mit ready analysis of samples which now must be brought 
back to campus for intensive study. 

It may be years before Susquehanna research at Camp 
Karoondinha can reveal environmental patterns and infor- 
mation which has value to the citizens of the region. But the 
value to University students is immediate: the field ex- 
periences which make the textbook come alive and, more im- 
portant, the exposure to research methods and the develop- 
ment of thought processes and techniques necessary for 
scientific inquiry. 

It is the aim of the SU Biology Department to provide 
each major with the broadest possible training and 
background in the biological sciences. The faculty provides 
versatility and variety of experience. Dr. Boone teaches

genetics in addition to ecology. Other staff members and 
their specialities are Dr. Howard E. DeMotl, plant 
morphogenesis and plant physiology; Dr. Bruce D. Presser, 
invertebrate zoology and embryology; and Randolph P. 
Harrison, physiology and microbiology. 

The required program, consisting of a sequence of nine 
courses plus related sciences and mathematics, qualifies stu- 
dents to go in many directions following graduation. Alumni 
are regularly accepted at medical, dental, and veterinary 
schools, as well as other prestigious graduate schools. In ad- 
dition to medicine, pharmacy, optometry, teaching, and 
research, graduates have entered bio-related industry in such 
roles as lab technician and quality control engineer, while 
others serve governmental agencies and consulting firms in 
such areas as park management, environmental-impact 
study, and city planning. 

"We gel good students in terms of ambition and ability," 
sa\s Dr Boone, "and this shows in the success our graduates 
enjoy after they leave. We have a demanding program— if 
students make it through, they can go pretty much where 
ihc\ want \\ hat Susquehanna offers that many schools lack 
is the personal attention that the faculty provide. Our faculty 
enjoys teaching and seeing the growth and development of 
students that results. Students get to know us; they know we 
are available and the\ realize we care about them. This helps 
them learn and also puts pressure on them because they know 
they are evaluated more carefully than if they were on a 
larger campus," Dr. Boone says.

Brig. Gen. Winston D. Powers presents Susquehanna's 

Col. Frank D. Richards with the Air Force Legion 

of Merit upon his retirement in November. 



SU vignette 



Can a retired Air Force colonel, the for- 
mer manager of a multimillion dollar, 
highly sophisticated, worldwide computer 
network essential to American national 
defense, find happiness as director of the 
Computer Center at Susquehanna Univer- 
sity? 

The answer is yes. according to Frank D. 
Richards '54. Native of Selinsgrove, 
Richards returned to his hometown and his 
alma mater in November to replace Russell 
W. Guthrie, who resigned, as director of the 
SU Computer Center. 

A veteran of 26 years in the Air Force and 
recipient of 13 medals for service as both a 
combat crew navigator and computer expert. 
Colonel Richards spent the past two years as 
assistant deputy chief of staff for com- 
munications, electronics, and computer 
resources at the headquarters of the North 
American Air Defense Command/Aero- 
space Defense Command (NORAD/AD- 
COM) in Colorado Springs, Colo. 

ln this post he directed operations involv- 
ing $276 million in computer equipment, 264 
personnel, and an annual operating budget 
of $58 million. (The annual budget for all 
operations of Susquehanna University is $10 
million). 

Colonel Richards was responsible for the 
interface of computers embedded in radar 
sensor systems located worldwide with the 
NORAD command and control computer 
systems located in the Cheyenne Mountain 
Complex. These computers provide cen- 
tralized command and control of thenalion's 
air defense, missile warning, and space sur- 
veillance functions. 

Holder of the B.S. in business administra- 
tion degree from Susquehanna, Richards 
also earned an M.S. in information science 
at the Georgia Institute of Technology, 
which he attended under Air Force spon- 
sorship. 

Before joining NORAD/ADCOM in 
1976 as director of the Regional Computer 
Center, Richards held several computer 
positions in Air Force offices at the Pen- 



tagon. He also was a navigator on B-47 and 
B-58 bombers with the Strategic Air Com- 
mand and served a tour of duty on AC-1 19G 
gunships in Southeast Asia. 

Upon his retirement, Richards received 
the Air Force Legion of Merit Award. He 
previously was awarded the Distinguished 
Flying Cross, eight Air Medals, the 
Meritorious Service Medal, and two Com- 
mendation Medals. 

"I enjoyed the Air Force very much," he 
says. "1 was presented with a lot of 
challenges very early in my career; it was a 
tremendous opportunity to learn and assume 
responsibilities." He says he reaped special 
satisfaction during the two years he spent 
with the NORAD/ADCOM Regional Com- 
puter Center, when he was responsible for 
helping to establish and make a success of an 
operation involving service to a large number 
of users from a centralized center. 

Upon his arrival, the operation was suffer- 
ing from extensive user dissatisfaction and 
technical difficulties. He introduced a 
network control center, a computer perfor- 
mance management program, and network 
user conferences which, within eight months, 
reduced abort rales from 21 percent to below 
one percent. 

"That experience convinced me that com- 
puter center management was a career I 
wanted to pursue," he says. "I became ju jre 
of the opening at Susquehanna just at the 
time I became eligible for retirement. I was 
interested in returning to the area because I 
have family ties here and because I had en- 
joyed the environment at the University." 

Richards does not sound like a man who is 
"retired" or who misses the excitement of 
the Air Force. "I like the challenge of 
programming and dealing with computer 
users and I also hope to do some teaching 
The amount of equipment is different, but 
the functions and problems, in terms of keep- 
ing the users satisfied, are similar whether 
the computer center is large or small. There 
is more personal contact in a smaller center, 
and I enjoy that."

concerned Susquehanna stu- 
dents arc volunteering tltcir services to 
assist with the annual Susquehanna Univer- 
sitj I und Telethon. Beginning in March 
and continuing through the middle of April, 
telephone calls will be made to all alumni 
who have not yet made their contributions 
to the 1980-81 M 1 

Tins program, now conducted entirely 
from campus, has become an integral pari 
of the annual fund effort. Alumni can help

\ll arc asked to join their fellow alumni 
in support of Susquehanna by pledging to 
the SUE as generously as their means will 
allow and by honoring pledges as quickie .is 

possible — and by remembering tb.u all 
gilts, large or small, will be greatly ap- 
preciated. 

Transcripts & Law 

The Registrar's Office at Susquehanna is 
concerned that many alumni are apparently 
unaware of the correct procedure to follow in 
order lo have an official copy of a transcript 
released. 

Many graduates make such requests via 
telephone, sometimes at the last minute, mis- 
takenly thinking that a phone call is all it 
takes to send a transcript on its way. This 
can result in needless expense (if the call is 
long distance) and disappointment. 

Federal law requires that all transcript re- 
quests be made in writing (letter or telegram) 
by the person whose transcript is to be sent 
(parents or spouse cannot authorize release). 

Persons requesting transcripts are advised 
to provide the complete address for mailing, 
including the specific person or office that is 
to receive the copy, to include payment of the 
52 fee, and to allow one week for processing 
of the request. 

To assure that the correct transcript is sent 
as promptly as possible, one should provide 
complete personal identification, including 
both married and maiden name (if ap- 
plicable), years of enrollment at SU, and 
social security number. 

Official copies, required by most em- 
ployers, must not pass through the hands of 
the individual making the request. Copies 
released to the student or former student are 
marked "student copy."

Page 22 SUSQUEHANNA ALUMNUS WINTER 1981 



SU Spoils 



by SUSAN STETZ 



A sea of new faces could be seen in the Crusader sports 
program this fall. Recent Susquehanna Sports Hall of Fame 
inductee Nancy Searfoss Smoker '73 coached the field 
hockey team to one of its best seasons in recent years. Jim 
Aurand of Middleburg look over the helm of Crusader soc- 
cer to bring the booters to an 8-7 tally, the only winning 
record at Susquehanna this fall. Finally, the cross country 
squad was coached by prominent marathon runner Stan Sei- 
ple of Sunbury. 

In his third year as Crusader head football coach. Bill 
Moll and the gridders posted a 2-7 season, which is identical 
to their 1 979 performance. The team opened with two ex- 
citing and convincing victories over FDU-Madison (3I-I2) 
and Upsala (I4-9). In these contests the Crusaders looked 
strong and Ihey outplayed the opposition in every category 
from total points to total plays. In fact, two members of the 
Orange and Maroon received Eastern College Athletic Con- 
ference recognition for their play in the Upsala contest. Scott 
Heller '82 (Oradell, N.J.), a 6-foot 1 70-lb. safety who had 
three interceptions, was chosen as the ECAC's Division III 
Co-Defensive Player of the Week, and Dave Santacroce '81 
(Bakerstown, Pa.), a 6-foot 172-lb. split end who caught 
eight passes for 94 yards, was named to the weekly ECAC 
Honor Roll. 

With these initial tastes of success, the 1980 football 
season seemed to promise to be a winning one. Unfor- 
tunately, the remainder of the schedule turned out to be one 
disappointment after another. 

In the third contest the Orange and Maroon faced the 
Lycoming powerhouse led by potential All-American quar- 
terback Rick Burd of Lock Haven. Despite a noble first- 
quarter effort by the Crusaders, Lycoming handed them 
their first defeat 46-3. The ensuing battles against Albright, 
Juniata, Franklin and Marshall, and Muhlenberg were a 
series of frustrations for Susquehanna: the team played well 
(several outcomes could easily have been turned around), yet 
could not manage tooulscore the opposition and win a game. 

Perhaps the greatest disappointment of all occurred in the 
closing contest against Wilkes, under the lights at 
Sclinsgrove High School. The Orange and Maroon were 
leading 7-0 in the fourth quarter when the Colonels staged an 
80-yard touchdown drive. Their attempt at a two-point con- 
version failed, and with 4:24 to go the Crusaders were still on 
lop 7-6. However. Susquehanna stalled, and a penalty on the 
ensuing punt gave Wilkes posession at the SU 39-yard line. 
Then the Susquehanna defense lost its grip and allowed the 
opposition to get down to the 14. With five seconds remain- 
ing, the Colonels booted in a field goal and handed Sus- 
quehanna its final heartbreaking defeat. 

The SU defense was led this year by Academic All- 
America candidate Dan Distasio '82 (Nanticoke, Pa.). The 
6-foot 190-lb. linebacker had a total of 100 tackles for nine 
games. He was aided by defensive back Vince McFadden '82 
(Kenhorsl, Pa.) and tackle Steve Gustitis '8 1 (Hollidaysburg, 
Pa.) who had 66 and 64, respectively. 

Quarterback Tom O'Neill '81 (West Reading, Pa.) was 
the leading passer with 40 completions in 108 attempts for 
519 yards and four touchdowns. Santacroce accounted for 
most of the team's pass receiving with 35 catches for 433 
yards. Leading rushers for Susquehanna were halfback Rick 



Wolfe '81 (Camp Hill, Pa), fullback Hank Belcolle '84 
(Ramsey. N.J.), and halfback Tom Bariglio '84 (Audubon. 
N.J.) who had 372, 327. and 260 yards, respectively. 



The Susquehanna spikers, at 5-8, did more than belter last 
year's record of 3- 10; they enjoyed their best season since the 
volleyball team was founded in 1977. Coach Pal Reiland at- 
tributes the team's success to its increased ability to receive 
and pass the ball to the setters. "Better blocking and con- 
sistency" were also cited by Reiland as pre-season goals for 
the squad, and it seems these skills were also accomplished. 

The spikers had six starters back from the 1979 squad 
along with a corps of capable freshmen. Hitters Barbi Hor- 
ton '81 (Silver Spring, Md.) and Allison Camps '82 (North 
Caldwell, N.J.) were chosen as co-captains and both women 
were instrumental in the team's success. Among the 
neophyte standouts were hitter Karen Brunner (Poughkeep- 
sie, N.Y.) and setter Marianne Nerino (Reading, Pa.). 

The 1980 season was highlighted by a three-game winning 
streak that included two shutouts and an upset. The 
Crusaders defeated both Elizabethtown and King's 3-0, and 
came from behind to win an exciting Scranton match 3-2. 
The team's other victories were against Wilkes and 
Swarthmore. 

With only four lettermen returning from last year's 10-3 
squad, the cross country team suffered its first losing season 
since 1974 with a 4-7 mark. Despite the team's unsuccessful 
performance, several individuals managed substantial ac- 
complishments. Dave Cashour '81 (Colts Neck, N.J.), who 
was one of the harriers' leading men. set a new course record 
at Western Maryland College. In that 19-42 Crusader vic- 
tory Cashour ran the five-mile course in 27:03, breaking the 
previous record by 35 seconds. 

The squad's most promising freshman turned out to be its 
top runner. Dave Salerno '84 (Morris Plains. N.J.) finished 
first for the Crusaders in six meets; he was out of four con- 
tests because of a virus. Perhaps Susquehanna's most depen- 
dable runner was Tim Harris '83, also of Morris Plains. 
Cited by Coach Seiple as "Mr. Consistency," Harris finished 
second for SU in eight of the 1 1 meets, and first for the squad 
against Juniata. Other top-five performers for the Orange 
and Maroon were Mark Drogalis '84 (West Wyoming, Pa), 
Allan Estrin '82 (Plainfield, N.J.) and Tim Taylor '82 
(Newark, N.J.). 

Although the 1980 season was not characterized by Sus- 
quehanna victories, the harriers managed to achieve a happy 
ending. Coach Seiple and his thinclads won their last two 
meets against York at home by a score of 26-30 and away at 
Albright 20-43. 

Under the direction of Coach Aurand, the Crusader soccer 
team posted the only winning record for a fall sport at Sus- 
quehanna this year — 8-7, up from 5-8 last year. The booters 
opened with two decisive victories over Lycoming (9-3) and 
Juniata (5-0). then it was "touch and go" for a while as the 
team lost some close competitions. The squad finally got 
back on solid ground with a five-game winning streak which 
included victories over Albright. Wilkes, Dickinson, York, 
and Lebanon Valley. The successful season was capped by a 
bid from the ECAC to participate in its Southern Regional 
Soccer Tournament. The team began the tournament against 
Franklin & Marshall, but lost 2-0 and advanced no further. 

Perhaps the highlight of the schedule was the 3-1 upset of 
the Gettysburg Bullets. In this exciting contest, striker Greg 
Lowe '81 (Chatham. N.J.) broke the SU record for most 
goals scored in a career. The previous record of 19 goals was 
set by Rob Hazel in 1975; Lowe scored his 20th and 21st 
goals in that Gettysburg game. He finishes with 24 career 
goals. 



Lowe tied for the team's leading scoring honors with 
striker Edgar Murillo '82 (Oruro. Bolivia); each had a total 
of 14 points this season. Yet another outstanding Crusader 
was goalie Bill Riggins '81 (Newtown Square, Pa.). Co- 
captain Riggins, in his fourth year for Susquehanna, had 127 
saves and allowed only 26 goals. 



The SU field hockey team got off to a rough start this 
season but ended up losing only one of their last seven games 
to achieve a 4-5-2 record, which is a marked improvement 
over last year's 1-6-4 season. The stickers continued their 
momentum in the final team effort of the year at the Sus- 
quehanna Valley Field Hockey Association Tournament In 
this tournament held at Wilkes College on Nov. 1 and 2, the 
Crusaders finished third out of 12 teams. Bloomsburg State 
took tournament honors with Lock Haven State as runner 
up. Susquehanna finished ahead of Marywood, Juniata, 
Wilkes, Mansfield Stale, Statewood, Centre County, 
Lycoming, and Wyoming Valley. 

Four members of coach Smoker's Crusader squad were 
named to the lournament all-star team: halfback Tina War- 
merdam '82 (Rutledge, Pa.), forward Lynne Warmerdam 
'82 (Rutledge, Pa.), halfback Allison Digby '82 (Newton, 
N.J.), and forward Emily Henderson '82 (Cherry Hill, N.J.). 

Henderson was the team's leading scorer with eight goals 
for the season, and she was followed by Lynne Warmerdam 
who, in her first hockey season for Susquehanna, had one 
goal and five assists. 

Goalie Cindy Eckman '82 (Mountville, Pa.) had a very 
good year with a total of 83 saves in nine games. She was 
aided by Theresa Santoli '8 1 ( Woodcliff Lake, N .J .) who had 
1 1 saves in two outings. 



The 1980-81 winter sports season opens with the fifth an- 
nual Crusader Classic men's basketball tournament on Dec 
I and 2. Coach Don Harnum has lost only two members of 
last year's 9- 1 5 squad, so the team expects to be strong. One 
of the major strengths is shooting ability. A key player is 5-1 1 
guard Rod Brooks '81 (Philadelphia, Pa.) who last year hit 
5 1 percent from the floor while averaging 1 7 points per game. 
Kevin Doty '82 (Springfield, N.J.), last year's top rebounder 
with 7.8 per game, is the newly-elected Crusader captain. 

The Susquehanna women's basketball team has a new 
coach, Tom Diehl, along with hopes for great improvement 
over last year's 1-12 season. Diehl, who was an assistant 
Crusader men's basketball coach last year, has cited two 
freshmen as players to watch: Lyn Jones (Reading, Pa.) and 
Ruth Athey (Tremont, Pa.). Lyn scored over 1400 points in 
her high school career and Ruth, who surpassed 1700 high 
school career points, had her number retired by the Pine 
Grove Board of Education. 

Coach Charlie Kunes has ten lettermen returning from last 
year's wrestling squad that took fourth place out of 20 teams 
in the Middle Atlantic Conference Wrestling Cham- 
pionships. Ken Tashjy '83 (Pequannock, N.J.) and Bert 
Szostak '81 (Colonia, N.J.), both 11-1 in dual meets lasi 
year, will be returning to aid the grapplers in what promises 
to be a very good year. Tashjy and Joel Tokarz '80 last winter 
became the first Orange and Maroon wrestlers to qualify for 
the NCAA Division III national tournament. 

Entering their second year of official intercollegiate com- 
petition, Ged Schweikert and his Susquehanna swimming 
team hope to better last year's records of 4-5 (men) and 2-2 
(women). Among the top returnees are Dave Smith '81 
(Allentown, Pa.), who was an MAC medalist in diving, and 
Bette Funkhouser '83 (Lebanon, N.J.), who took second in 
the women's 100-yd. backstroke at the M ACs last year. Also 
back out for the natators is last season's most improved 
female swimmer, Robin Greenawalt '83 (Orwigsburg, Pa).

WATER CRISES AND COMMONSENSE 



by FRANK W. FLETCHER 

"Civilization," the historian Will Durant once wrote, "ex- 
ists by geological consent, subject to change without notice." 
We have to be reminded of that every now and then. 

I was reminded of it just the other day. I had finished my 
breakfast and was paging through the Sunday paper. 

The headline said: "Rationing of Water Extended in Jer- 
sey to 202 Communities." 

I poured another cup of coffee, spread out the paper on the 
table, and read on. "Governor Byrne," it said, "directs towns 
involved to prepare plans for possible failure of supply 
system." I took a sip of coffee. The article continued, "In a 
news conference permeated by an atmosphere of growing 
crisis. Mr. Byrne said that 'maybe' a 40-day supply of water 
remained for about three million people in the northeastern 
part of the state." 

The governor, it seemed, was in a serious mood. He told 
reporters that he had directed the superintendent of the state 
police to draw up plans "to marshal tanker trucks and freight 
cars to haul water" from South Jersey. And, "as a last-resort 
contingency to save the last remaining water for drinking," 
the governor raised the possibility that "firemen may be or- 
dered to let buildings burn." Finally, he announced that he 
had appointed a "Drought Coordinator." 

Now, I'm not a governor, but I wouldn't have taken this 
last step. By all accounts the drought was doing just fine on 
its own and didn't need a Trenton bureaucrat to coordinate 
it. Even if it did, 1 wouldn't have named some politician to 
the post. I would've appointed Will Durant. 

Or my old friend John Maxwell. In 1965, while he was still 
teaching geology at Princeton University, Dr. Maxwell 
wrote in the }Outna\ American Scientist, "For centuries we in 
the well-watered East have taken for granted that clean water 
in almost any desired quantity will flow from the tap when- 
ever we require it. Now, quite suddenly, we are deluged witb 
newspaper and magazine articles suggesting an imminent 
and general water crisis throughout the country." 

"Already," he noted, "the water supplies of the western in- 



terior half of the country are pre-empted. Indeed, in parts of 
this area, water is being mined from underground storage at 
an alarming rate." Maxwell's choice of the word "mined" 
was deliberate. Throughout the High Plains of the United 
States, deep wells pump water which has been trapped in 
aquifers for thousands of years and which is not being 
restored by recharge from the surface of the earth. 

"In our own state of New Jersey," he went on, "the entire 
northwestern half is close to its maximum safe sustained 
yield of surface and ground water." 

Today, and I hate to bring this up, the entire northeastern 
half of the Garden State appears to be close to its maximum 
safe sustained yield as well. I have no recent readings of the 
staff gage at the Wanaque Reservoir, but when the governor 
tells me that firemen would be "under orders to save only 
people from burning buildings and not use hydrants," I get a 
little uneasy. 

Drought is a worrisome thing. Not because it is a lack of 
water, but because it is a lack of foresight. Few persons con- 
sider the adequacy of their water supply until some crisis 
makes it impossible to ignore further. I would sooner hook a 
brook trout on a redworm than try to tell the local Chamber 
of Commerce that the available water supply of the region is 
going to interfere with its goal of attracting more commerce 
and more industry. You could drop a property-tax bill or a 
water balloon on any Chamber of Commerce east of the Mis- 
sissippi and you would almost certainly hit a person who 
believes that there is plenty of water. 

As Steward Udall observed in his fine little book The 
Quiet Crisis, "It was the intoxicating profusion of the 
American continent which induced a state of mind that made 
waste and plunder inevitable." Seduced by a land rich in 
minerals and forests and water, Americans came to think in 
terms of infinity rather than facts. We Americans created a 
fallacy that has very nearly been our undoing — the Myth of 
Superabundance. According to this myth, our resources were 
limitless, inexhaustible.

What E.B. White once said about disarmament can be said 
about superabundance: it "looks good because it sounds 
good." But like all myths, superabundance was a premature 
explanation that overstayed its time. We never seem to un- 
derstand the truth until we have to contend against it. 

The history of water needs, particularly in urban regions, 
is a distressing tale of continuous crises. For city after city, it 
is an invariable and repetitive cycle. First, there is a slow 
realization that the city's water supply is inadequate. This 
realization prompts a few officials to prepare plans to 
enlarge the supply; but these plans are dismissed because of 
high costs. There follows a crisis of water shortage and a 
burst of activity to build new facilities to supply the needed 
water. Too soon, the cycle begins again. 

The history of the New York City water system, which has 
grown steadily since the early 1 800s trying to keep pace with 
an expanding population, is typical. In 1820, with a popula- 
tion of nearly 300,000 persons, the city had outgrown its 
water supply (of shallow wells and small reservoirs). Unable 
to find satisfactory sites for reservoirs nearby, the city fathers 
reached out to Croton, where they built a new reservoir and 
linked it to the city with a 37-mile long aqueduct. 

By the turn of the century, New York began to grow 
skyward, chiefly because it had no other direction in which to 
expand; and the demand for water soon outstripped the 
capacity of the Croton Reservoir. Once again city officials 
looked around for new sources of water. 

This time their eyes fell on the Catskill Mountains, about 
120 miles from New York. In 19I7 the Ashokan Reservoir 
was completed, and 1 1 years later the Schoharie Reservoir 
opened . Although the addition of the Catskill system more 
than doubled the previous supply, by I930 the demand for 
water by New York City exceeded the supply. Only abnor- 
mally high rainfall averted a crisis until 1949, when the levels 
of the Catskill reservoirs dropped dangerously low, and New 
York enacted strict regulations to conserve water. 

During the 1950s three more reservoirs, the Neversink, the

The 
President's 
Window 




In his most recent book entitled Legacy, American artist and author Eric Sloane 
tells of a discovery in an abandoned Pennsylvania bank barn. Sitting on the edge of a 
manger and cleaning the chaff and cobwebs of a hundred summers off a rough founda- 
tion stone, he uncovered the inscription, "We are here for a reason." No pious, outside 
decoration embellished by distelfink birds to catch the eye of the casual passerby, these 
words had been recorded on the inside of the structure as a more personal reminder to 
the farmer himself. 

Although we most frequently associate Eric Sloane with almost luminescent cloud 
paintings and his celebration of early American everyday artifacts which reflect both 
beauty and integrity, his Legacy reminds us that persons, implements, and institutions 
are here for a reason or purpose. A good edge, he would tell us, is good for nothing if it 
has nothing to cut. Given the acceleration of change about us, and the almost instant 
obsolescence which ever troubles our being, it is all too easy to dwell on the mutability 
of forms and means, while forgetting the purpose of their being. 

The purpose of television remains much the same today as it was when primitive 
models were first shown in the 1930s. As no other invention before, it had the means to 
entertain, communicate, and educate. Picture tubes would change in size, shape, and 
color; we would come to have documentaries, soap opera, animation, and instant 
replay; Oral Roberts would share time with Alistaire Cooke, Luciano Pavarotti and 
Charlie's Angels. The purpose, however, remains the same: the enlightenment of an en- 
tire nation, perhaps a greater portion of the whole world. 

As college educators and alumni who support higher education, we too run the risk 
of losing our sense of purpose. If the aims of education — a healthy mind and soul in a 
healthy body — have remained relatively constant through the centuries, the means to 
achieve them have changed beyond the unrestrained imagination of the most Utopian 
dreamer or radical reformer. For Americans, the transformation of means in higher 
education since the Civil War has been most marked. Beginning with the metaphor of a 
college education being Mark Hopkins on one end of a log and a student on the other, 
we have constructed educational edifices more akin to the Mark Hopkins Hotel, joined 
them together with more than a little academic red tape, and called them multiversities 
and systems of higher education. 

The sacrifice required and the intellectual and physical achievement necessary for 
this is a justifiable source of national pride. A college education, once the privilege and 
sometimes refuge of the well-born, is now the legitimate opportunity for all who 
deserve it. For good reason, our priorities of the last several decades dealt with the con- 
struction of buildings, the amassing of faculties, and the collection and dissemination 
of information. For good reason, as well, it became convenient and conventional to 
equate quality and progress with size, specialization, and the proliferation of degree 
programs. 

Within this unprecedented expansion, it has been easy for things to get in the way of 
purposes and reasons. As faculty, administrators, and alumni — educators all — we are 
here to provide a liberal learning for able and motivated men and women at Sus- 
quehanna. The means to our purposes are the intellectual disciplines of the arts and 
sciences, business, and music. Our mission is to help our brothers and sisters, sons and 
daughters to learn how to learn, to gain the rudiments which will lead to a productive 
career, and to develop the commitments to become stewards of our God-given 
freedoms and our home, the earth, a planet which if not yet plundered is being ex- 
ploited to the limits of its resources. 

No doubt the old Pennsylvania farmer saw his reason for being within a more simple 
agrarian stewardship. His was a more private admonition. For us, given the press for 
superficial changes in means and forms, it would be better that his maxim be placed 
prominently in a well-traveled archway. Cobwebs and chaff of our own making may 
blur over our vision and the purpose of our being. We are here for a reason, and the 
reason, pure and simple, is to teach and help others to learn. 

— Jonathan Messerii 



Alumni Directory Due Off Press 



The Susquehanna University Alumni 
Directory 1981 , originally announced to ap- 
pear in January, is now expected off the press 
and out of the bindery by May 15. In- 
dividual shipments will begin immediately 
thereafter. 

The directory, first for Susquehanna since 
1963, will be the most comprehensive as well. 
For all persons who responded to last 
season's questionnaire, the volume includes 
occupational information and address in ad- 
dition to home address and phone numbers. 



The book consists of alphabetical, 
geographical, and class directories, and also 
covers honorary degree recipients. A 
minimum of general information about the 
University is included. 

Orders for the directory were taken by 
mail at the time the questionnaires were dis- 
tributed and returned. A restricted number 
of extra copies in paperback will be available 
for sale, however, at SP.50 each. Those in- 
terested should contact the Alumni Office 
for details.

Water Crises and

Commonsense 



Rondout. and the Pepacton. were added to the Catskill 
system, and construction began on a fourth one. at Can- 
nonsville. Every time the residents of Manhattan brushed 
their teeth, they rinsed with water which fell on the wooded, 
rolling hills near Binghamlon. With this additional storage, 
the water planners estimated that New Yorkers would have 
enough water to meet their needs until the 1980s. 

What the planners and engineers had not reckoned with, 
however, was nature, which seems at times to be oddly 
malevolent. In 1961 the longest and most severe drought in 
the history of the Northeast hit the region. Water storage in 
the Catskill reservoirs dropped to only 26 percent of 
capacity. The smallest of the reservoirs, the Schoharie, vir- 
tually ran dry. One hot day in August 1962 a young Ph.D. 
candidate, who was soon to assume the position of instructor 
in geology at Susquehanna University, walked across the bed 
of the Schoharie Reservoir without so much as getting his 
field boots damp. 

On Long Island, where housing developments had sprung 
up like chick weed, streamflow dropped to one-half of normal 
and the water table fell by ten feet. Nassau County officials 
appealed to suburbanites to reduce their lawn sprinkling and 
car washing. It was a near thing for awhile. 

But the crisis ended abruptly in 1967 when the Jetstream 
slipped into a new path across the Northern Hemisphere and 
rainfall returned to "normal." More than 80 million persons 
had been given a good scare because, for five years, the an- 
nual precipitation lingered at eight inches below the long- 
term average of 44 inches. The frenetic march of American 
life had been slowed momentarily by an 18 percent decline in 
rainfall. Now, if Governor Byrne is to be believed, it is 
starting alt over again. 

I don't know Mr. Byrne personally, mind you; but I have 
seen him on the six o'clock news once or twice, and he seems 
honest enough. Besides, I do know my fellow man. You can 
bet that somewhere in this country the cycle is beginning 
again; if not in northeastern New Jersey, then in Southern 
California or Arizona or Florida. 

What gets me all wrought up is that it doesn't have to hap- 
pen at all. There's something about the human mind that 
keeps us looking for answers in the wrong corners. During 



the drought of 1961-66, the mayor of one of our great 
Eastern cities told a group of reporters that the whole mess 
was an "Act of God." These are sure mixed-up times. The 
columnist George Will put it best: "The theology of the age is 
that God doesn't exist and that he manifests himself in ran- 
dom unpleasantness." 

Evidently more sensitive to the issue of separation of 
Church and State, the US. Geological Survey pronounced 
solemnly that the water shortage was caused by "inadequate 
precipitation." Maybe the Survey just didn't want to make 
any trouble. 

As I remarked earlier, we've treated water as if it were 
limitless. As local supplies were strained, we reached out 
farther and farther for new sources. It's not been only New 
York City; it's been Phoenix and Indianapolis and Los 
Angeles. We hit a zenith of sorts in 1969, when a group call- 
ing themselves the North American Water and Power 
Alliance proposed to divert vast quantities of water from 
eastern Alaska and northwestern Canada to the American 
Southwest. Fortunately, the high price tag — more than 100 
billion dollars — and commonsense killed the plan. 

The sooner we get it into our heads that the water supply of 
the earth, and of little patches of it such as northeastern New 
Jersey, is not boundless, the better I'll feel. Like E.B. White, 
I too hold one share in the corporate earth and am often un- 
easy about the management. 

Under the press of an ever-growing number of persons, 
water managers have focused on increasing the supply of 
water. It is an elementary principle, however, that a finite 
resource cannot long sustain infinite consumption. Long 
lines at the gasoline station and high heating-oil prices have 
demonstrated that. But unlike a non-renewable resource 
such as petroleum, whose stocks move in one direction 
only — downward — the stock of the planet's water is regular- 
ly renewed. We've known that since 1670 when Pierre 
Perrault measured rainfall (less evaporation) and streamflow 
in the Seine River basin and found that they balanced each 
other. The whole thing is, as we would say today, a "zero- 
sum game." 

Water is renewable, but it too is finite. If we are to avoid 
the unpleasant prospect of empty reservoirs and dry wells.

then we must match the amount of water we withdraw from 
the ground and from streams and rivers with the amount that 
falls to the earth as precipitation. The equation must be 
balanced. Water in storage is like money in a bank; the 
balance declines when withdrawals exceed deposits. The 
water shortage which now afflicts northeastern New Jersey 
stems not only from a decrease in rainfall but also from the 
long-term and continuous increase in water use. The citizens 
of New Jersey have been rolling over their hydrologic debts 
for too long. 

It's not an idea that is in vogue these days, but the problem 
of insufficient water supplies is not amenable to "supply- 
side" efforts. Efforts to increase supply only make worse the 
cycle of crises. Instead, our efforts must be directed toward 
limiting the demand. Now, I'll probably get letters about 
this, but instead of devising new and more expensive ways to 
capture the water of distant sources and bring it to the ex- 
panding urban regions, we are going to have to re-direct the 
population which exceeds that sufficient for local water sup- 
plies, to other places where the supply of water is sufficient to 
serve them. 

It can be done. In Bologna, the seventh largest city in Italy, 
the city government has limited its population to 600,000 and 
is directing any further growth to the surrounding com- 
munities. Ifitcan be done in Italy, where the average citizen 
looks upon his government as an occupying power, it can be 
done here. 

Despite the fact that I'm a resident of a nation where the 
banks have to chain pens to desks and where the national 
flower seems to be the concrete cloverleaf, I remain mildly 
optimistic. It's just possible that commonsense is one of the 
valuable by-products of education; especially if. as Will 
Durant contended, education "is the progressive discovery of 
our own ignorance."

Working/ Studying 




by CHARLES ZLOCK 



While reflecting on the year she spent in Europe, Janet 
Coviello '80 said that just being able to see Michelangelo's 
"David" in Florence, Italy, left her with "no need to say 
more!" All experiences considered, nevertheless, Janet and 
other Susquehanna students have had plenty to say about 
their ventures abroad and the opportunities made available 
to them by an expanded program of international study and 
on-the-job training. Enlargement of the program is a quite 
recent phenomenon which came about through cooperation 
between the University's departments of Modern Lan- 
guages. Business Administration, and others. Dr. Wilhelm 
Reuning, professor of history who was SU dean for 19 years, 
has been coordinating the program's growth. 

For a number of years it was mostly foreign language ma- 
jors who used organizations such as the Institute for Euro- 
pean Studies (I.E.S.) as a resource in arranging to spend up 
to a full year abroad to sharpen their technical skills and to 
experience, firsthand, the social and cultural surroundings of 
a country other than their own. But with an increasing inter- 
national focus on the fields of politics, business, and social 
work, such multinational training has warranted more 
serious consideration by non-language majors. 

Unfortunately, integrated programs involving courses in 
foreign languages, business practice, political science, and 
cultural sensitivity are conspicuously lacking in the United 
States. Consider the fact that only two international 
graduate business schools (University of South Carolina and 
the Thunderbird Institute in Arizona) absolutely require that 
their students take a foreign language as part of the program. 
Of the two, only U.S.C. also makes it mandatory for its stu- 
dents to study and work abroad for a period of time. 

U.S. colleges and universities, having the responsibility to 
educate young men and women for a dynamicTuture, must 
respond to the changing demands for a host of new skills 
that, up to now, were not considered immediately relevant by 
American standards. These included such abilities as foreign 
language competency, familiarity and sensitivity to foreign 
cultures and customs, and actual practical experience 
abroad. 

Students possessing such skills today will have much more 
varied and more lucrative opportunities open to them when 
they enter the job market. An American Council on Educa- 
tion report, in fact, states that ". . . the number of challeng- 
ing and high-paying jobs open to people with international 
education is increasing and will continue to expand in the . . . 
future." Such careers will exist in many diverse fields Be- 



cause of a rapidly changing international scene, the United 
States Government, U.S. and foreign multinational cor- 
porations, and foreign service agencies will require more ex- 
perienced and qualified personnel to manage their affairs. 
Susquehanna has begun to take a leading role in training 
its students to meet these challenges that await them in the 
international field. The University's Department of Business 
Administration has formalized its commitment to the in- 
struction of business students for careers with multinational 
business firms by recently adopting a statement encouraging 
its majors to pursue the study of foreign languages and 
cultures. The Crusader, student weekly, carried this article 
by Linda Carol Post '81 in its issue of last October 10: 

"We recommend to all students contemplating a career 
in business that they continue their language studies 
while in college, that they develop cross cultural 
knowledge and sensitivities . . ." begins the closing 
statement of a document adopted by the Business Ad- 
ministration Department at its September 29th meet- 
ing. 

Recognizing the increasing relevancy of foreign 
languages to business, SU's business department of- 
ficially made a commitment to encourage its students in 
the study of foreign languages. The document cites six 
supporting reasons for this commitment. 

The lack of foreign language ability in U.S. business 
persons limits competitiveness in international markets. 
With U.S. business on an international decline, other 
languages surface as more important. United States 
businesses have a growing dependency on the inter- 
national market which calls for increased understanding 
of foreign cultures. 

As the U.S. dollar loses stature in the international 
world, other financial centers are developing elsewhere. 
Spanish speaking people continue to immigrate to the 
U.S.. creating a bilingual domestic culture. And finally. 
the cost of foreign language study in executive training 
programs is costlier than university instruction. 

For those six reasons the department calls on its stu- 
dents to increase their language study by using the 
facilities available at SU as well as "participating in 
clubs, international summer programs, international in- 
ternships, and by individual reading programs. 

To enhance this training, a number of SU students have 
been able to acquire meaningful business experience abroad 
with one of the growing number of international business 
concerns with which Susquehanna maintains contact. These 
companies are located primarily in West Germany and

France, but several students have also been employed in such 
places as Spain and Turkey. 

Perhaps the strongest attraction of the Susquehanna 
program is thediversity of opportunities that it can offer stu- 
dents who wish to study and/or work abroad. 

Cindy Martz '81 of Dalmatia, Pa., and June Lesher '81 of 
Ashland, Pa., working through I.E.S. and the University of 
Freiburg, spent several months studying at that university in 
West Germany. Their curriculum included an analysis of in- 
flection and syntax in the German language and its literature 
since 1945. Rhonda Bowen '81 of Wellsboro, Pa., worked 
with I.E.S. in Vienna and her studies emphasized East-West 
relationships. 

I.E.S. students, however, were not restricted to Germany. 
Janet Coviello, now of Parsippany, N.J., and Cathy Ray- 
mond '80, now an administrative assistant at Dartmouth 
College, worked through the program in such disciplines as 
drama, art, literature, history, and political science at the 
I.E.S. campus in Paris. France. In all these cases, courses 
were conducted in the language of the country where they 
were taught, which gave the SU students a fresh perspective. 
As Rhonda commented: "Most courses had more of a Euro- 
pean emphasis, which is quite different from an American 
view." 

Several of the Susquehannans took the initiative to find 
employment, either full- or part-time, while studying abroad. 
As with their academic curriculum, the type of work ex-

penence obtained varied with the student, Beth Schlegel '81 
of Lansdale, Pa., after studying for a full year at the Uni- 
versity of Konstanz in West Germany, was employed by the 
Bethel Institute of the Evangelical Church, located in 
Bielefeld. She specialized in working with cerebral palsied 
and epileptic children. Rhonda first worked for Honeywell 
International in Austria, and later for Siemens Electronics in 
Munich. Her experience included assisting in drawing up dis- 
tribution contracts as well as teaching English to foreign 
chief executive officers. 

Language majors are not the only Crusaders who have 
been employed in foreign countries. Over the past several 
years, some business majors have participated in foreign in- 
ternships. Cornelia ("Korney") Klee '80 of West Simsbury, 
Conn., and Barb Voelker '81 of Shavertown, Pa., took their 
internships with Emil Lux in the German industrial Ruhr 
Valley. Both were involved in preparing marketing catalogs, 
product development, market research, warehouse manage- 
ment, and cost-benefit analysis of new product groups. Liz 
Palmer '80 of Harrisburg worked for Fredenhagen in Offen- 
bach near Frankfurt, where she did invoice proofing and 
computer purchasing. In the university town of Heidelberg, 
this writer and Pat Polaneczky '8 1 of Oreland, Pa., had half- 
year internships with the Stieber Division of Borg-Warner. 
The program offered experience in accounting, sales, 
auditing, personnel, finance, and computer science. 

Naturally, while they were in Europe the students took ad- 
vantage of the opportunity to travel extensively throughout 
both West and East Germany, France, Czechoslovakia, 
England, Wales, Austria, Belgium, Luxembourg, Italy, The 
Netherlands, and Switzerland. They visited Prague, the 
Vatican, Florence, Vienna, Munich, London, East and West 
Berlin, the Rhine, the Alps, Paris, and Salzburg. As Cindy 
Martz and Janet Coviello said: "Travel was convenient and 
inexpensive, especially if you had a Eurail Pass and lodged at 
the many youth hostels located across Europe." 

We've also talked about our impressions of Europe while 
we were traveling. It was important, after all, to realize that 
you were in another country and, thus, had to "play by their 
rules" and do things according to the local customs. Anyone 
who persisted in trying to do things the American Way would 
have trouble adapting. Even if one did not agree with 
everything, the effort to see things from the European point 
of view paid off in finding the people to be very receptive and 
warm — which helps you to conform in the new surroundings. 
Rhonda also commented the foreign experience "... teaches 
a person to be more open and tolerant of other people and 
their ways." 

"You must also realize that Europeans are more exposed 
to political and social extremes in terms of the Right and Left 
wings," states Beth Schlegel. "In this respect, it forces you to 
evaluate and define your own lifestyles to a more significant 
degree." Europeans have had to do this for many years 
because of the polarization of opinions throughout the conti- 
nent. "Since it affects their lives more closely than it does 
people in the U.S.," says Korney Klee, ". . . Europeans are 
more knowledgeable and interested in domestic and foreign 
politics than Americans are." Adds Janet Coviello, "Nation- 
alism pervades practically everything, though to a degree, 
from politics to the food they eat." 

To that extent, Europeans take a dim view of people, es- 
pecially tourists, who don't seem to want to take the time to 
understand the entire scope of their national sentiment. Con- 
cerning this issue, Cathy Raymond noted that "Parisians 
don't like 'narrow minded' tourists." "Sometimes they can 
be very cold, even rude," says Janet, implying how important 
it is for our young men and women to become more aware of 



When asked to comment about the implications of an in- 
ternational program such as this for Susquehanna Univer- 
sity, Cindy Martz stated: "Regardless of a person's major, 
people should learn the story from a second point of view. 
What better way than through the eyes of those in another 
country? Naturally, you learn about other people, business 
methods, and lifestyles, but you also learn more about your- 
self and your relationship to your own country." Beth further 
remarked that "it is crucial for a student from any discipline 
today to grow experientially, physically, personally, and in- 
tellectually. To live, study and/or work abroad is a means to 
this end. In addition, such experience offers more and better 
prospects to the student in the future." 

"Our program is well conceived, planned, and organized," 
says Korney. "It is important that Susquehanna University 
be involved outside of Snyder County. Of course, it also 
benefits the students. Employers see foreign experience on a 
resume and they are impressed." 

The students, nevertheless, did offer some constructive 
criticism of the program. "Not enough publicity" was one 
comment reiterated several times. Students at Susquehanna, 
as well as future recruits, should be made more aware of the 
opportunities that exist for them in the field of international 
studies at Susquehanna. A second common concern is the 
amount of credit received for work and/or study abroad. Ex- 
perience such as this often requires more growth, respon- 
sibility, and maturity than experience acquired at home. 
Thus, several students question the policy of granting less, in- 
stead of more, academic credit for courses of study taken 
abroad. In some instances, no course credit was given but 
final grades from courses taken in a foreign country were 
figured into the student's final transcript. 

Yet, even with these criticisms, these Susquehanna stu- 
dents unanimously offer tremendous praise for the program 
and for the faculty members who have made it possible for 
them to travel, work, study, and live in Europe. With such a 
program, the University has the opportunity to market a 
service which few graduate and even fewer undergraduate in- 
stitutions can offer. If it were further planned, organized, 
staffed, and funded in a conscientious manner, a significant 
amount of financial benefits and recognition could be 
realized by the University. Yet, in the long run, of course, it is 
the students who really benefit from the program — now and 
in the future.

The Air We Are Breathing 
Is Full of Seeds 



by GARY FINCKE 



The Canadian poet Margaret Atwood once said that 
poetry is dangerous, that "talking too much about it. like 
naming your gods, brings bad luck." For the most part, I 
have followed her advice. How should I explain, after ail. a 
process that is intuitive? How many people, moreover, are in- 
terested in subtleties of poetic technique? Rather than discuss 
how I write, then, what I can share, without bringing myself 
"bad luck," is where my poetry originates. 

In the town where my family lived before moving to 
Selinsgrove, one of the kindergarten teachers had established 
a tradition with her students. Each weekend of the school 
year one of the children was permitted to take home and care 
for the class guinea pig. It was a ritual about which it was dif- 
ficult to say anything bad. The visitor stayed only two days; 
the children were ecstatic. 

My oldest son was as excited as any of his classmates. On a 
snowy January afternoon he helped to carry the cage con- 
taining Patches to our car. The rest of the weekend he spent 
playing with what seemed to me to be a very sluggish guinea 

Pig. 

There was good reason for my skepticism. On Monday, 
shortly after my son returned the cage to the classroom. 
Patches died. Naturally, my son was upset, and naturally, 
too, he recovered, accepting the replacement the teacher 
purchased. In fact, I would not be telling you this story now if 
it were not that my daughter brought home a guinea pig 
named Ginger three years later. 

By coincidence, she had the same kindergarten teacher as 
my son. By an incredible coincidence, she took a quite lively 
Ginger back to school on Monday, reached into the cage, 
handed the guinea pig to her friend, and watched it promptly 
die. 

What, the teacher may have asked then, was terminating 
the life of her pets? When my wife and I heard the news, we 
thought at once of our youngest child, then two years-old, 
who would shorten the life of some hapless animal in 1983. 

As it turned out, we moved, and have probably extended a 
life, but my daughter did not take the death of the class pet so 
flippantly as her parents. She cried; she was afraid somehow 
she had killed it. What 1 offered her for her sorrow was a 
poem, one that, after I began it, expanded into something 
more than a simple lament for a guinea pig: 

TO MY DAUGHTER 

Though you want this day to begin again, 

We must bury this clumsy thing that died 

In your hands. And though its death was natural. 

I can comfort you not at all with quick 

Stories of cageless guinea pig heaven. 

1 am dismayed, too, by this stiff body. 

This is no museum; as much as this pet 

Whose eyes refuse to close we are changing. 

I could tell you that capacity 

Increases this way, you brought it a joy 

Whose edge was too sharp. Someone soon. Shannon, 

Will have the proper surface for keeping 

Your love inside. You will hold him, and he 

Will change. Accept each temporary face — 

Decay is thus delayed, and we. at least. 

Outlive most of the animals we keep. 

Now, it would be dishonest for me to claim that poetry 
comes that easily from a specific experience. In this case it 
did (with minor revisions), and the story behind it has enough 
humor to make it a favorite when I read my work to audi- 
ences. 

Nevertheless. I think it is important for anyone reading 
poetry to understand that being receptive to experience in- 
spires most creative work. Whether the experience leads 
directly to writing in a short period of time, as for the poem 
above, or whether it lies within the mind until something in 
the present sets it off. it is always at the center of things. The 
experience, prodded, becomes audible, no longer private. 
When it becomes language, the writer may have a poem. 

Very rarely, in fact, have I ever sat down to write a poem 
about a particular subject (in the previous poem, for in- 
stance. 1 began with the experience, and the eventual subject 
suggested itself as 1 wrote), but the following one was written 
somewhat like that; 



LATE SUMMER COLLAPSE 

It is reported 

that the team you love 

has lost again, is 

slumping badly toward 

the second division, 

and you borrow a black 

armband, wear it with regret. 

Who has died? your friends 

wonder, and you say Clemente, 

Munson, Kenny Hubbs, 

the Cubs in August again. 

You are afraid to fly; 

the city is sullen. 

Somewhere in the bleachers 

two men begin to fight, 

each in despair 

at September without meaning. 



In this case an invitation had been offered to me to write 
several poems for an anthology entitled Jocks, a collection of 
poems from various writers on the subject of sports. Even un- 
der these conditions, however, I began with the idea of 
writing poems about tennis, which has been a summertime 
business for me for ten years. 

Perhaps baseball calls up more emotion for me; perhaps it 
is easier to approach a subject with which I am not directly 
involved. More likely, I was calling Atwood's "bad luck" 
down on myself by undertaking writing in such a self- 
conscious manner. Regardless. I admit to being a lifelong 
Pittsburgh Pirate fan, and what suggested itself tome, in the 
midst of the Pirates' late August collapse last summer, was 
how the fortunes of a baseball team could affect peoples' at- 
titudes. On the surface, it seems silly to say an athletic team 
made up of strangers can alter how someone looks at life, but 
consider behavior: It might be the Iron City Beer or the after- 
noon sun, but the brawl in the stands is made more likely by 
the tension, the sense of importance given these contests peo- 
ple pay to see. In looking back at the poem, I recognize that I 
have made the Cubs the team that collapses. For one. they 
have this tradition, and it is well known in baseball; for 
another, though, my loyalty to the Pirates is at work here, 
preventing me from explicitly documenting their failure. 
Consider associations: Watching baseball is a kind of 
Romanticism carried into middle age; it creates folk lore and 
mythology. The early deaths mentioned in this poem take on 
a mystique similar to those of film stars, rock singers, politi- 
cians. What if? If only? The questions, of course, are un- 
answerable, and this is the quality that guarantees they will 
always be asked. 

The juxtaposition of incident with idea, image with emo- 
tion, can lead in unexpected directions as well. I have begun 
to write about my habit (my family finds it an obnoxious one) 
of cooking veal and lamb kidneys, and finished with a love 
poem; I have started with a complaint about my varicose 
veins and discovered a poem about my mother and her pride; 
I have worked with a line from an advertisement for a movie 
("In space, no one can hear you scream.") and created a 
poem about writing poetry. 

Surprise is the important word. Writing that works best 
allows the reader to see things in a new way. The subject may 
even seem to be luminous. This may lead to excess — it is 
relatively easy to make up grotesque and ridiculous images — 
but the key of experience can open up many puzzling locks. 

A subject I have returned to several times, for instance, is 
my grandfather. And this is the puzzle: For years, as I grew 
up, my parents visited a man whom I did not know; for years, 
too, they spoke of a man referred to only as "The Prince." 
The stories, I thought, were fascinating; the visits were 
tedious. "The Prince" was the drunken farmhand who fell 
from the top of a silo and landed unhurt in a pile of hay, 
relaxed, no doubt, from the alcohol sloshing within him. 
"The Prince" was the street car conductor, drunk, who was 
crushed between two trolleys and lived after being given up 
for dead. The old man we visited, first at a farm, and later at 
a chant> home, spoke only to my parents, and then softly, 
while I would wander away to explore a barn or a dining hall.

At some point in my early teens (I find it difficult, even 
now, to understand how I took so long to make the connec- 
tion) 1 discovered these men were identical. As I remember 
it, one day as we left the home I simply asked "Who was that 
guy?" 

"Your grandfather Lang," was my mother's reply. 

Little else was said. My family has a reputation for such 
low-key responses. I still did not speak to him or question 
why this secret had been kept. What I did do, however, was 
pump my mother and my aunt for additional stories. My 
aunt's narratives were more emotional — she spoke of holes 
punched in walls, live chickens thrown into the kitchen, 
money stolen from children. Not having to live with such a 
parent, 1 relished the stories. Here was action and humor. 
Here, too, was pathos — when my grandmother died shortly 
after this, my grandfather, separated for years from his wife, 
was not permitted to attend the funeral. 

I was married before I actually visited him on my own. My 
wife, of course, found the circumstances bizarre. The 
minutes spent in his tiny room were as awkward as one might 
expect. What do you say to someone whose reputation and 
present condition seem so incompatible? I was addressed as 
"Ruthie's Boy." Perhaps he forgot my name. 

He died, at last, near ninety The alcohol, represented to 
me by my parents as such a threat, seemed not to have short- 
ened his life. What 1 am left with are the stories and the con- 
tradictions. Of the several poems I have written that use him 
as a central character, here is the most recent one, part of a 
series titled "Unaddressed Mail": 

Grandfather — 

Occasionally, I have meant to write. 

But misunderstood the spelling of your name. 

Misplaced your last address and knew nothing 

Of your interests but alcohol and cheese. 

And how was it you were never introduced? 

I may have been watching the chickens 

When your name was spoken; later, 

I watched the cripple across the room. 

Gottlob is as foreign as your past, the man 

Who punched holes in his walls, stole beer money 

From his children, fell from the silo top 

And lived to puzzle me. Maybe, after all. 

You ate Limburger and onions to be 

Alone. Something of your habits has taken 

Hold — I have children who wonder who I am. 

I, loo, have forgotten temperance, remember 

Instead to tell the supernatural 

Stories to my son. "Gottlob Surviving" 

Is an epic, chronicles the conductor. 

Drunk, who was crushed between two trolleys, 

the change 
Embedded in him. Of course, he endured. 
Which is the reason I write: Account, please, 
For the "will you had to live," grandfather, 
Last living of four. What has driven you 
To that small room, the gift of cheese, the days 
Spent walking the halls as if you expected 
To prove, somehow, their maze has an exit?

Gary Baylor: "Small" Businessman 



The first thing that impresses the visitor to the Country 
Cupboard Restaurant and Store two miles north of Lewis- 
burg, Pa., is the size of the layout. Beyond the huge parking 
lot stretches a mult-sectioned, attractive, modern building a 
block long. 

To the left inside the main entrance is the dining area — a 
family-type restaurant seating 400 and banquet rooms able 
to serve groups from 20 to 200. To the right is the country 
store which leads to the gift shop. Beyond that is a lounge 
area, then the patio and Christmas shop, and finally, the 
greenhouse. In all, the complex covers 52,000 square feet. 

The Country Cupboard, situated on 20 acres adjacent to 
Route 1 5, attracts some half-million visitors annually, em- 
ployes a work force of I60, including 85 full-time, and has 
gross sales totaling $2.7 million. 

Vice-president-treasurer and store manager of-this family- 
run business is Gary E. Baylor '69. His father H. Daniel is 
founder and president. Gary's wife Barbara serves as a 
bookkeeper and secretary, and other family members handle 
other aspects of the operation. 

Native of Lewisburg, Gary has worked in the family 
business since his father and his partners opened the Farm- 
ers' Best market and restaurant by the riverbank in East 
Lewisburg in 1963. Following the flood associated with 
Hurricane Agnes in 1972, the Baylors decided to go it alone 
and head for higher ground. They opened the Country Cup- 
board in 1973. 

As a commuter, Gary was able to continue working with 
his family while attending Susquehanna. For three years he 
even managed to schedule all his courses on Monday, Wed- 




The experience here is not immediate or recent, but it con- 
tinues to compel me with its subject. 

A final note should add that much of my writing is not so 
autobiographical. Some of it is presented in entirely different 
forms as well. Even in these few examples, the reader can see 
that the experience of the characters within the poems is not 
the same as the experience I describe that accompanies each 
one. However, the beginnings of poems nearly always arise 
from something concrete, something that happens to me or 
that 1 am witness to. If these starts come to me it is because I 
reject nothing out of hand; everything, for me, lends itself to 
poetry. 

1 will close with a brief descriptive poem that took shape, 
like the others, from experience. The weather is always with 
us— what does such a commonplace signify? Perhaps little, 
or perhaps there is something here that suggests the life force 
that pushes us all into the future: 



HUMID POEM 

These weeks furry, mold sprouting 

overnight from bread . . . 

A neighbor carries twins within her; 

Our mongrel cat grows swollen 

As if this damp were yeast . . . 

After the thunderstorms we walk 

The streets, waders refusing 

To discard our shoes . . . 

The air we are breathing is full of seeds.

"I went to Susquehanna because I wanted to major in 
business and I thought the University had a good program," 
Baylor says. "Also, I liked the campus, which I had visited 
on a Lutheran Youth Day program while I was in high 
school." 

While he thinks he was well prepared in business skills — he 
majored in marketing and management and also studied 
accounting — the restaurant-store executive believes he also 
benefited greatly from Susquehanna's general education re- 
quirements (now termed the Core Curriculum). Baylor's 
courses included geology, history, English, religion, and art 
appreciation. 

"In small business, a good general background is impor- 
tant," he says. "You need to know psychology and sociology 
as well as business practice, sales techniques as well as ac- 
counting. In a major corporation, you have to specialize, but 
we have to handle all aspects of the business ourselves, in- 
cluding such things as customer relations, business law, and 
communications. 

"We have to be able to carry on discussions with bankers 
and financial advisers as well as with our customers," Baylor 
notes. "Being able to get along with all types of people is im- 
portant in our business, and that requires more than just 
business skills," he says. 

By any measure, the Baylors are successful. Last year 
Pennsylvania's Travel Industry Advisory Council named the 
Country Cupboard to its annual list of the state's top 10 at- 
tractions for visitors. 

Most of the food served in the restaurant and sold in the 
country store is prepared on the premises, including such 
specialties as vegetable soup, potpie, apple sauce, and baked 
goods. Even the candles are homemade — both for table 
settings and for sale. 

The restaurant runs a daily special and carries at least 16 
different meals and assorted side dishes, has breakfast and 
luncheon menus, and offers the convenience of a "serve-it- 
yourself" express soup and sandwich line. Meals are healthy, 
hearty, and inexpensive. And, despite the large clientele, 
service is quick and friendly. 

The variety of shops attached to the restaurant and the 
easy access from Routes 15 and Interstate 80 make the 
Country Cupboard a popular stop for travelers, including 
many tour buses. Despite the somewhat large scale of the en- 
terprise, the smiling faces of all the employees give visitors 
the feeling they are in the home of old friends. 

The family arrangement seems to work well in a personal 
sense, too. All the Baylors and their in-laws appear to 
genuinely enjoy their work and each other. "We work well 
together," says Gary. And, they work hard. But the hard 
work and long hours are offset by one of Daniel Baylor's 
rules: although the establishment is open every day except 
Christmas, each member of the family must take off one full 
day a week. 

Gary finds time to pursue a lifelong fascination with 
railroad history. He does research, makes models, and does 
photography and drawings related to the story of the 
railroads in Pennsylvania. He is an active member of the 
National Railway Historical Society's Central Pennsylvania 
Chapter, which is restoring the White Deer Railroad Station 
as a meeting place and museum. Baylor's hobby merges with 
his business in the gift shop, where there is railroad 
memorabilia and a vast collection of books on Pennsylvania 
railroad lore for sale. 

He married his high school sweetheart, the former Bar- 
bara Alspach of Lewisburg, in June 1969, shortly after his 
graduation from Susquehanna. The couple has two boys — 
Chris, age 9, and Jonathan, 6.

SHERRY SHEAFFER BRETON '76 and 
JAMES B. NORTON III *64 were playing 
two of the five principals in "Where's 
Charley?" at the Three Little Bakers' Dinner 
Theater in Kennett Square, Pa. (During its 
six-week run, the musical was seen by some 
20.000 patrons.) Although they had been 
rehearsing together for some weeks, it wasn't 
until they read each other's biography in the 
printed program after the show opened that 
Sherry and Jim realized they had the same 
Alma Mater. Then they began comparing 
Susquehanna experiences. 

They both had been active in dramatic 
productions — Jim in a variety of plays in 
Benjamin Apple Theatre and Sherry in 
Opera Workshop productions on the same 
stage. Both had been in the marching band. 
Sherry sang in the University Choir and the 
Chamber Choir. Jim was on the Crusader 
staff and in Alpha Phi Omega. 

Sherry, who was married last July, is now 
teaching voice privately in the West Chester 
(Pa.) area and singing with the Minikin 
Opera Company in Wilmington, Del. Hus- 
band Thomas Breton, a Gettysburg College 
graduate, is the development officer, tour 
manager, and on-site public relations person 
for the Minikin. Following her graduation 



from SU, Sherry earned her master of music 
in vocal performance from West Chester 
State College. 

Jim married Nancy Dumbauld, a gradu- 
ate of Penn State, and they have two chil- 
dren, Nicole, 7, and Niles, 4. Chairman of 
the English Department at Coatesville Area 
Sr. H.S. where he also advises the drama 
club, he has been active in PSEA-NEA serv- 
ing as president and chief negotiator of his 
local and in various capacities on regional 
and state committees, Jim holds an M.S. in 
education from Temple University. 

He serves on the board of the West 
Chester Barley Sheaf Players, an active com- 
munity theatre group in Lionville, Pa., and 
last summer he attended the National 
Democratic Convention as a delegate from 
Pennsylvania's 1 6th Congressional District. 

They didn't realize it at first, but Jim and 
Sherry had actually met before, when Sherry 
was a student performer at a Philadelphia 
District Alumni Club meeting. Jim is a past 
president of the club. 

They both plan to continue their involve- 
ment with dinner theatre productions — as 
they have the time, and find the roles that in- 
terest them.

THAT'S HOW IT WAS 

by EMMETT FREDERICK 

Through the years, fraternities played a role in Susquehanna's life, especially the 
social life. In fact, for their members, fraternities were the hub of social activity, 
with dances, serving as meeting places for families and friends and their own 
athletic contests in competition with other students. 

In earlier days, there were two local fraternities at Susquehanna. Phi Mu Delta 
went national years before Bond and Key affiliated with Lambda Chi Alpha. And 
rather than being called fraternities, they were known as "frats," a word at which 
Greek letter society purists shudder today. 

The two houses were situated directly opposite each other on what was then 
known as Walnut Street. Later, Phi Mu Delta was to have constructed on land ad- 
joining to the east the building which today houses the fraternity. That was an im- 
posing structure, much admired by townspeople as well as collegians, and an asset 
to the Phi Mu members in their quests for new members. 

Saturday afternoon dances were held frequently during the winter months to 
provide a social outlet. Music was furnished by Victrola. Faculty members 
generally would drop in during the afternoon. Chaperones were drawn from town 
residents, some of them younger than the students they were supervising. 

The fraternity brothers were tolerant of town children. Phi Mu Delta at one time 
possessed a donkey, which would be ridden up and down the sidewalk on the frater- 
nity's tide of the street. Youngsters sometimes would accompany students to 
classes, and the faculty would enter into the spirit of the thing by calling out the 
child's name after taking attendance. The young classroom visitor would respond, 
"Here," just as the students did. 

In summer months, the men at Bond and Key frequently amused themselves with 
what they called their "penny trees." These were two cedars along the walk to the 
porch where the members were sealed. When neighborhood youngsters would ap- 
pear, they were told that the cedars were penny trees and that by shaking them, pen- 
nies would fall. The children would attempt to shake the trees, and the seated 
brethren would flick pennies into the branches. One young boy stuffed his pockets 
with 52 coppers gathered in one noon-time session. 

Fraternities relieved any strain on dormitory and dining facilities at the school. 
Women from the community were employed as cooks, and delighted in loading the 
dining tables with home-baked goodies and other special dishes. Hucksters came 
right to the door with eggs and meats, and in season, fresh produce and fruits. Mem- 
bers were fed to the limits of the house manager's budget. 

For several years, a fraternity, Epsilon Sigma, existed at 401 West Walnut 
Street. The others came later. 

Recalling the fraternities of those days brings to mind a prank that members of 
one house played on a more affluent member who had a car. They smeared Lim- 
burger cheese on the manifold, and as the motor heated up, the odor— stink would 
be a more precise word— became unbearable. The unfortunate car owner had to 
take it to a garage to have the motor cleaned. To make matters worse, the trick was 
perpetrated in winter, when the cold dictated driving with the windows closed.

Two of Susquehanna's honorary alumni 
received special recognition recently. 

In Chicago, Dr. Dorothy Burnett Porter 
Wesley hc'71 and her husband were saluted 
at the DuSable Museum of African 
American History by the Iota Delta Lambda 
chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity for 
their contributions to the study and preserva- 
tion of black history and culture. Mrs. 
Wesley, regarded as one of America's 
foremost librarians, was for many years 
director of the Moorland-Spingarn Collec- 
tion of Negro Life and History of the 
Howard University Library. Her husband is 
a noted historian. Both have written exten- 
sively. They were cited as "unsung heroes" 




deaths 



Accolades 



with the note that black society cannot sur- 
vive if its only heroes are sports and enter- 
tainment figures. 

At Buckingham Palace in London, the 
Very Rev Dr. Ronald CD. Jasper hc'76, 
dean of York, was invested a Commander of 
the Order of the British Empire after having 
been selected by the Queen in her New 
Year's Honours. The honor is tribute to 
Dean Jasper's 25 years as chairman of the 
Liturgical Commission of the Church of 
England, culminating in last November's 
publication of its new Alternative Service 
Book. Thus, he has now placed C.B.E. after 
the D.Litt. following his name.

SU Sports 



by SUSAN STETZ 



Perhaps the most excitement in Crusader sports this win- 
ter was generated by a 5-7 freshman from Reading, Pa., 
named Lyn Jones. Averaging 29.8 points per game. Jones 
paced a Crusader women's basketball team that went I-I2 
last year to an 8-8 mark this season, one of the best in the 
squad's history. 

With the ability to connect from just about anywhere on 
the court, Jones ended the season with 476 points, scoring in 
double figures every outing. Twice this year she scored over 
40 points; she had 47 against Western Maryland and 42 
against Wilkes. And if that were not enough, Jones played 
the last three contests with a severely sprained ankle and still 
totaled 96 points. 

Although there exists no comprehensive ranking of in- 
dividuals in Division 1 1 1 women's basketball, Jones's scoring 
average is believed to be among the highest in the nation. She 
led the Middle Atlantic Conference in scoring with an aver- 
age of 30. 1 for II league games. 

"Lyn has the potential to be one of the best players the 
conference has ever had," praised Coach Tom Diehl. "She is 
not only a scorer, but she is a fine defensive player, a leader, 
and a tough competitor." Her coach's praise is reinforced by 
her other statistics — Jones also led the team in assists with 
4,4 per game and was second in rebounding with 9.3 per 
game. 

This year's success story of the women's basketball team 
was coordinated by first-year Coach Diehl who almost 
managed to make 1 98 1 the first winning season since 1 963. 
However, a scries of injuries to key players hindered the 
team's chances. The .500 mark matched those of 1977 and 
I978 as Susquehanna's best records in the past 18 years. 

At mid-point in the season the Crusaders were 6-2 and 
showing potential for a great finish. It was then that they 
were besieged by injuries. Possibly the most damaging blow 
to the team occurred when the leading rebounder, forward 
Sue Worhach '83 (Shamokin, Pa.) broke her nose. Worhach, 
who averaged 10 rebounds a game, was forced to miss the 
last six contests. 

Center BarbSwenson'83(Bryn Mawr, Pa.) missed several 
games because of a leg injury. "A lot of players were forced 
to play injured," noted Coach Diehl, who had only seven 
players at the close of the campaign. 

"The team is very young. We spent a lot of the year getting 
to know and play with each other," stated Diehl. The team 
will have four starters returning next year, two freshmen and 
two sophomores. "Our lone senior. Captain Becky Edmunds 
(Forty Fort, Pa.) will be missed, but it is nice to have a 
youthful team," Diehl admitted. 

Perhaps the most underrated member of the squad was 5-4 
guard Ruth Athey '84 (Tremont, Pa). Athey was second in 
scoring for the Crusaders with 1 3.6 points per game and was 
also second in assists with 4 per game. "Ruth's talents are of- 
ten unnoticed, but she was an important part of molding the 
team," said Diehl. 

Dichl's game plan for next season is to continue the team's 
improvement and, hopefully, to avoid injuries. "We need a 
good recruiting year," he stressed. "I would like to be solid 
two deep at every position. We need to improve our inside 
game, especially rebounding, and 1 hope to play a lot more 
man-to-man defense." 



With the aid of several outstanding freshmen, the men's 
Basketball team, at 15-10, equaled its best record since 
1962-63. Because of the youth of this year's squad, it seems 
that this season may be only the beginning of a winning 
trend. 

Six-seven forward Scott Gabel '84 (Boyertown, Pa.) was a 
consistent starter for Susquehanna. Both his field goal per- 
Dentage and his free throw percentage were among the tops 
not only for the Crusaders but for the entire MAC. Gabel 
:ndcd the season averaging 12 points per game— fourth 
ughesi on the team. He was .569 from the floor and .747 
from the line. To add to all this, he was the team's number- 
Dne rebounder as he averaged 6.4 caroms per game. Gabel 
*as one of six players nominated for ECAC Rookie of the 
Year. 

Yet another neophyte member of the SU five was 5-11 
Suard Bob Weise '84 (Allegany. NY). Playing at the point 
;uard position, he passed the ball for a total of 1 54 assists— a 
lew Susquehanna record for assists in a season. 



According to Coach Don Harnum. "These new players 
added to our existing experience and made us a better team." 
Weise and Gabel led an excellent group of freshmen that con- 
tributed much to Crusader basketball this year. Another 
promising newcomer was 6-3 forward Larry Walsh '84 
(Camp Hill, Pa.). 

At best, the 1980-81 basketball season could be described 
as a true team effort. In fact, four players finished the season 
with scoring averages in double figures. 

Five-eleven guard Rodney Brooks '81 (Philadelphia) and 
6-3 forward Larry Weil '81 (Colonia, N.J.) scored an iden- 
tical 342 points for the season for an average of 13.7 points 
per game. Weil was second on the squad in rebounding as he 
averaged 6.2 caroms per game. 

Six-four forward and captain Kevin Doty '82 (Spring- 
field, N.J.) was the third-highest scorer with 12.7 ppg and 
third-high rebounder with 5.4 per game. 

Brooks's four-year total came to 1435 points; he thus ties 
with Barry Boblick '71 as the fifth highest career scorer in 
Crusader basketball history. He was named to the first team 
of the MAC-North all-stars for the second straight season. 

Probably one of the most disappointing aspects of this 
season for the Orange and Maroon, however, was just miss- 
ing a chance for a berth in the MAC playoffs. 

After mid-season the Crusaders were hot on a six-game 
winning streak, downing such opponents as Elizabethtown, 
Dickinson. Wilkes, Delaware Valley, and FDU-Madison. 
Unfortunately, this string of victories was ended by the 
Scranton Royals, and Susquehanna could manage to win 
only one of its last four contests. 

One of the final losses, at the hands of Lycoming, was the 
most difficult to swallow. In what was a tight conference 
race, the Crusaders were hoping for that coveted playoff bid, 
only to have that hope dashed by the Warriors. Susquehanna 
ended its conference season with a 7-6 mark. Elizabethtown 
was also 7-6, Lycoming was 8-5, and Albright finished on top 
at 9-4. 



For the second consecutive year the Crusader matmen 
matched their most successful showing in the Middle Atlan- 
tic Conference Wrestling Championships. Susquehanna fin- 
ished fourth of 20 schools to equal its previous best finishes of 
1971 and 1980. Lycoming captured tourney laurels with 
120.25 points, followed by Delaware Valley with 11 2.25 and 
Scranton with 88.75. The Orange and Maroon grapplers 
totaled 73.25. 

The really big news of the tournament, however, was that 
Susquehanna produced its first individual MAC champion — 
tri-captain Bill Bryson '81 (Chazy, N.Y.) at 142 pounds. 
With a 12-2 dual meet mark for the season, Bryson was 
seeded third at the event. "Bill had a lot of injuries and per- 
sonal problems in the previous conference championships," 
commented Coach Charles Kunes, "but we knew he had the 
ability to be the best, and he proved us right." 

Based on their performances at the MAC, Bryson and two 
other Susquehanna grapplers, Bert Szostak '81 (Colonia, 
N.J.) and KenTashjy '83 (Pequannock, N.J.) participated in 
the NCAA Division III National Championships at John 
Carroll University in Cleveland, Ohio. The SU wrestlers per- 
formed respectably at this highly competitive event; Bryson 
and Tashjy went 1-1, while Szostak lost to the top seed, for a 
combined total of 2.5 points. Coach Kunes was not disap- 
pointed. "We wrestled to the best of our ability." he noted, 
"and that's something to be proud of." 

Actually, there was quite a bit for the Susquehanna 
wrestlers to be proud of this season. Their 9-6 mark for dual 
meets was among their most impressive in recent years. At 
the outset of the '80-'81 season, however, the possibility for a 
winning year didn't seem that promising. The matmen lost 
the first four bouts to Messiah. Juniata. Scranton. and 
Lycoming. But. despite these setbacks, they managed to 
maintain their composure and lost only two of their remain- 
ing 1 1 matches. 

During the course of the season the grapplers set new 
records for most consecutive wins with six and most points 
with 427. The nine wins matched the existing standard set in 
1971. 

A discussion of the Susquehanna wrestling team wouldn't 
be complete without mention of the squad's only undefeated 
wrestler in dual mpMt 177-lb sensation Ken Tashiv He 




Captain Doty puts one up in trattic. At 
right: Brooks, We//, Jones, Davis, Bryson, Syostak. 



posted a 1 9-0 mark for the regular season this year, which in- 
cluded a championship at the Lebanon Valley Tournament 
at the beginning of December. At the. MAC he was seeded 
second, and that is exactly how he Finished as he lost in the 
finals to be defending champion. 

Szostak, with a dual mark of 11-1, was third seed at the 
MAC. After losing his first round match, he fought his way 
back through the consolations for a third-place finish. One of 
Susquehanna's most consistent wrestlers, Szostak holds SU 
career records for total victories, points, takedowns, and 
pins. He also owns the season standard for pins. 

The Orange and Maroon's successful showing at the MAC 
Championship didn't end with Bryson, Tashjy, and Szostak, 
as SU placed two other grapplers at the event. At 118 
pounds, tri-captain Todd Burns '81 (Hummels Wharf, Pa.) 
captured a fourth-place finish. Burns posted his best dual 
mark ever this season at 11-3. After scoring a dual meet 
record of 7-5, 150-lb. Dave Heitman '82 (Upper Saddle 
River, N.J.) finished fifth in the MAC. 



To solely examine their 2-5 record is not to get a true pic- 
ture of the performance of Coach Ged Schweikert's female 
natators this past winter. The SU women swimmers finished 
sixth of 14 teams in the MAC Championships; three of their 
regular season losses were to Gettysburg, F & M, and 
Western Maryland, which captured first, third, and fifth at 
the MAC. In other words, one can say that the Crusader 
female swimmers had a rather tough dual meet schedule. 
They were also plagued by injuries to key performers. 

Despite certain setbacks, the natators broke school 
records 28 times in 16 different events and had several point- 
winners at the MAC meet. 

Two newcomers, Mary Davis '84 (Westfield, N.J.) and 
Winnie Keller '84 (Garden City, NY.), provided the bulk of 
the exciting moments for SU. These two were breaking 
records left and right. 

Davis now holds Susquehanna marks in the 200-yd. in- 
dividual medly, 50-yd. butterfly, 200-yd. backstroke, 100-yd. 
backstroke, and 50-yd. backstroke. At the MAC. she took 
third in the 200-yd. backstroke and fourth in the 100-yd 

harkslroke H<r limp nf 1 (U ll in th. lo..„r »..— . -I 



SPRING 19B1 SUSQUEHANNA ALUMNUS Page 73 








with her 50-yd. split time of :30. 1 . passed qualifying stan- 
dards for the collegiate national championships. 

Keller is the holder of SU records in the 200-yd. freestyle. 
100-yd. individual medley, and 100-yd. freestyle. Along with 
Dans, she swam on relay teams that set new marks in the 
200-yd. medley. 200-yd. freestyle, and 400-yd freestyle. At 
the conference championships, Keller took third in the 100- 
yd. freestyle and joined Davis on two successful relay- 
teams — the 400-yd. medley (sixth place) and the 400-yd. 
freestyle (fourth place). 

The two other members of Crusader women's outstanding 
relay teams were team captain Cindy Townsend '81 (Devon. 
Pa.) and Bette Funkhouser '83 (Lebanon, N.J.). who also 
hold some individual school marks. 

Prior to this season. Coach Schweikert expected his male 
natators to do "at least as well as last year's 4-5 squad," and 
his prediction was almost on the money as the 1980-8 1 squad 
posted a 4-6 record. Two of the squad's defeats, at the hands 
of King's and F & M, occurred in the last event of the meet. 

The men swimmers' tenth-place showing at the MAC 
wasn't exactly momentous. However, Dave Smith '81 
(Allentown. Pa.) captured fifth place in the diving event. 

During the course of the season SU records were broken in 
four events. Co-captains John Stahl '81 (Mountain Lakes, 
N.J.) and Pete Rile '81 (Pottsville, Pa.) set new standards in 
the 200-yd. butterfly and 100-yd. freestyle, respectively. In- 
terestingly enough, that was the first time Stahl ever swam 
that event. 

Tom Mullen '83 (Westmont, N.Y.) twice broke the SU 
record for the 200-yd. backstroke. The final Crusader 
record-breaker was Smith in the one-meter optional diving. 



Last spring everyone was a winner at Susquehanna as all 
six teams achieved winning marks, and the chances for 
another clean sweep this year are pretty good. 

Third-year Coach Jim Taylor's cindermen are seeking yet 
another undefeated season since only four seniors from last 
year's 10-0 squad have graduated. Taylor and his assistant 
Steve Jarrett hope that their aggressive recruiting and 
enthusiasm will pay off this year to the extent of winning 
tournament laurels in the MAC. The strong point of the 1980 
thinclads was depth, yet they didn't have the truly out- 
standing individuals needed to score points in championship 
competition. Perhaps maturity and experience will alleviate 
this problem for the SU track team this spring. 

The baseball team has a long record of success at 
Susquehanna — 1980 was its fifth consecutive winning season 
at 14-1 1. Second-year Coach Scot Dappwill be losing some 
of his key players from last year's nine such as righty pitcher 
Bill Carson '80 (Williamsport, Pa.) and catcher Dale Kyler 
'80 (Ashland, Pa.). Last season Carson ranked fourth in the 
nation in strikeouts for NCAA Division III, and Kyler had 
the team's highest batting average at .328. Dapp has, 
however, a pretty vast pool of resources to draw from to fill 
the gaps left by graduating seniors. 

In his 1 1 years as coach of the Crusader golfers, BussCarr 
has never had a losing season but doesn't want to be overly 
optimistic about his year. He will be missing four of eight let- 
termen from the squad that went 8-4 last spring and finished 
fourth in the MAC Championships. Returning, however, will 
be last season's top two scorers, Ron Reese '82 (Lancaster, 
Pa.) who averaged 76.7 and Tom Wolven '81 (Fullerton, 
Calif.), 79.8. 

Women's tennis went 5-2 last year and still has the same 
team that captured the MAC title in 1979. Battling for the 
first-singles position this season will be Lynn Pickwell '82 
(Pittsfield, Mass.) and Donna Gottshall '81 (Schwenksville, 
Pa.). Last spring Pickwell was undefeated in dual matches 
and was named Most Valuable Player. Gottshall was dealt 
the first and only dual loss of her career by MAC champion 
Becky Donecker of Elizabethtown. 

The Crusader netmen will be led by a poet this season, as 
SU Writing Center Director Gary Fincke was recently 
named head coach. Dr. Fincke is entering the position with a 
vast accumulation of tennis coaching and teaching ex- 
perience and he hopes to continue the successful efforts of 
last year's 6-5 team that enjoyed the first winning record in 
the sport since 1967. Returning to lead the Orange and 
Maroon is Robb Larson '8 1 (Harrisburg) who will be playing 
first singles for the fourth consecutive year. 

Rounding out the spring sports picture at Susquehanna is 
the women's soflball team which, in its three-year history, 
has never suffered a losing season. The diamondgirls, 
coached by Pat Reiland, will be missing 1980 MVP Candy 
Schnure but have all but two members of last year's squad 
returning. Top returnees include last season's Best Offensive 
Player, Sue Bowman '81 (Mendham. N.J.) who was both a 
pitcher and a third baseman with a .396 batting average, and 
the Best Defensive Player, second baseman Tina Warmer- 
dam 82 (Rutledge. Pa).

ENERGY SAVING PAYS OFF IN $$ AND AWARDS 

by PETER SILVESTRI 



Golf carts are a common sight on the Susquehanna 
campus these days. Some visitors think they're cute. 
Some students regard them as something of a joke. 
Wiseguys may make cracks about turning the campus 
into a country club. 

But the golf carts are no joke and are not intended 
for rest and relaxation. They are a serious part, and the 
most visible aspect, of the University's program to 
conserve and manage its energy use. 

While everyone feels the effect of rising energy costs, 
and dependence on foreign oil imports is a problem 
plaguing the entire nation, the issue is of special 
significance for a small college like Susquehanna. 

I n the 1 980s, which forecasters say will be a difficult 
decade for American higher education, the Univer- 
sity's ability to control energy usage is not only a mat- 
ter of patriotism, but can be essential to the very sur- 
vival of the institution. 

Susquehanna's success in dealing with this problem 
was highlighted this spring when both the 
Pennsylvania Power and Light Co. and Honeywell Inc. 
presented awards to the University for effective energy 
management. 

Over the past several years Susquehanna, par- 
ticularly the Physical Plant Department under the 
direction of William Aikey, has implemented many 
energy-saving measures. These range from such quick 
and easy acts as removing unnecessary light bulbs to 
such complex and sophisticated steps as purchasing 
and installing an energy management system. 

The Honeywell Delta 1000 is a computer-based 
system which regulates and monitors lighting, heating, 
ventilating, and air-conditioning in major campus 
buildings, automatically making adjustments ac- 



cording to changing outside climate and time of day. 
In addition to saving energy, the system also saves 
manpower and other costs in the areas of fire safety 
and security, as it monitors smoke and heat detectors 
and unauthorized entry. 

Honeywell did a study which indicates that the Uni- 
versity saved a total of $75,958 on the cost of its steam 
(heat) production and electric usage during the first 
two years after the energy management system was in- 
stalled in 1977. 

This amount resulted from avoidance of some 1.25 
million kilowatt hours, representing a 15.2 percent 
reduction in use for a saving of $38,547, plus avoidance 
of over 18 million pounds of steam production, 
representing a 12.3 percent reduction in use for a sav- 
ing of $37,41 1 . Converting these amounts to oil terms 
(the University steam boiler and the local electrical 
power plant burn coal), Honeywell says the saving is 
the equivalent of 1 63,469 gallons or 2972 barrels of oil. 

These figures were adjusted to take into account 
degree-day changes and inflation. Additional loads 
recently added to the system were not considered. Tak- 
ing into account the additional load and the rising cost 
per unit of energy production, the future savings to the 
University are expected to be much higher than this in- 
itial $38,000 annual amount. And this figure involves 
only steam and electricity. Savings effected by the 
Physical Plant Department in other areas, such as gas- 
oline, manpower, and maintenance needs, are difficult 
to tally but are estimated to be in the range of $20,000- 
30,000 per year. 

A listing follows of other energy-saving measures 
taken by Susquehanna. 

* Five gas-driven vehicles used to transport workers 



and materials around campus have been replaced by a 
dozen electric golf carts which were remodeled by 
members of the Physical Plant staff. Not only do these 
save gasoline, but they also save time, since they are 
designed to be driven across the grass and are not 
restricted to roads. 

* Some 760 fluorescent lighting fixtures, deemed 
unnecessary for sufficient light in certain areas, were 
removed. 

* In dormitory hallways and other locations, incan- 
descent bulbs are being replaced with more efficient 
fluorescent lights which produce roughly twice as 
much light at one-third the wattage. 

* Ceiling fans were installed to provide ventilation in 
lieu of air-conditioning in the Evert Dining Hall and 
four offices on campus. These have a cooling effect of 
some seven degrees at about one-tenth the cost of air- 
conditioning. 

* Mercury vapor lights in the main parking lot 
behind the Weber Chapel Auditorium and the Campus 
Center were replaced with high-pressure sodium 
lamps. Not only do the new fixtures provide better 
lighting with a 45 percent reduction in electric load, but 
they result in fewer obstructions by allowing removal 
of 13 light poles — four of the new lamps give better 
performance than 17 of the old. 

* Not only is energy saved, but materials are 
recycled. The mercury vapor lights removed from the 
parking lot are being installed elsewhere on campus to 
replace older, less efficient incandescent outdoor fix- 
tures. Again, improved lighting is received from fewer 
lights requiring less maintenance — each mercury

present SU with a matching gift Chech for $530, hare received by 
Richard L. Baker, assistant professor of accounting, whose department 
will benefit. At right is Dave Brown of E & W's Harrisburg office. 
Leslie, who solicited the contributions from nine E & W employees 
in several offices, has now joined the staff at Bucknell University. 



On Honoring Alumni 

Alumni Awards, traditionally the feature among features at Susquehanna's annual 
luncheon on Alumni Weekend, eame in for even more attention this May. The Awards 
program, initiated in 1 956. celebrated its 25th anniversary — twenty-five years of honoring 
special alumni in a special way. And when this year's winners had been given their medals, it 
was revealed that the l u SI Award for Service — to George Bantley '4 1 — was the 1 00th medal 
to be awarded by the Alumni Association. 

Committee Chairman Don Wissinger '50 reviewed some interesting highlights of the 
program over the years: the first awards were for Achievement, to the father-son team of 
Icrn I) Bogar x'99 and Guy M. Bogar '2 1 ... first Service award was made to Clyde R. 
SpiUner '37 in I96I . . . first Senior awards to John H. Raab and M. Joan Lawley in 1962, 
the same year the medal was created (earlier, the award was in the form of a certificate) and 
given retroactively to all previous winners . . . two awards have been given as Recognition and 
two were presented posthumously . . of the present total of 1 00 members of this elite group. 
78 arc living. 

It is indeed an elite group — of special people we can all be proud of. The Awards Commit- 
tee knows, too. that there arc many other special alumni who have achieved markedly or have 
rendered beyond-the-call-of-duty service to Susquehanna, persons who ought also to be 
honored in this special way but have not yet been nominated. Why not tell Don Wissinger 
about them'' Write to him in care of the Alumni Office, or 3 Oak St.. Sylvan Hills,

* Additional insulation has been installed in ceilings 
and sidewalls wherever feasible. 

* A more efficient exhaust system and more ef- 
ficient cooking equipment were installed in the 
Campus Center kitchen. 

* Susquehanna is attempting to save money in still 
other areas. A campus Energy Task Force made 
recommendations for such things as reducing the Uni- 
versity's use of paper and envelopes. Faced with 
skyrocketing water rates in the Borough of 
Selinsgrove, SU has drilled its own well. Producing an 
average of some 1 3,000 gallons of water per day to sup- 
ply the steam boilers, the well is expected to return the 
cost of installation within two years. 

Representatives of PP&L and Honeywell presented 
their Energy Management awards to President 
Jonathan Messerli and other University officials at a 
dinner in the Campus Center on May 11. Also par- 
ticipating in the ceremony was John Buffington, chief 
counsel with the (Pennsylvania) Governor's Energy 
Council. 

He praised Susquehanna for being "particularly far- 
sighted." Noting that "high energy costs are passed on 
to the consumer," Buffington told the University of- 
ficials, "you have accomplished something in your in- 
terest, in the public interest, and in the students' 
interest." 

As colleges face increasing competition for a declin- 
ing pool of prospective students in the 1980s, it 
becomes essential that Susquehanna be able to keep 
tuition increases to a minimum. Dr. Messerli referred 
to this fact when he noted that "we believe we price 
ourselves properly for the services rendered." He also 
said that the University's ability to reduce energy con- 
sumption was "a good lesson for students," indicating 
that "economy and frugality can be the gateway to a 
better life, not a lesser one."

Long Journeys of Hope 



THE 1981 BACCALAUREATE SERMON 



by REUBEN T. SWANSON 

Secretary, 

Lutheran Church in America 



Grace be unto you and peace from God our Father and the 
Lord Jesus Christ. Let us pray. 

Still our hearts, O God. Help us to hear once again your 
call that comes to us your children. Help us to.know and see 
that we are called upon by you to give witness of our faith, to 
proclaim and declare our love, to show, O Lord, our concern 
for all people. Lift up our sights this day, heavenly Father, to 
see our part on that pilgrimage of the long journey of hope 
and the responsibility that we have to make refuges for others 
who are on it. Amen. 

The trauma couldn't be missed. The headline of The New 
York Times read "The Long Journey of Hope from Mariel 
to Key West." Some of you probably read that article, and 
the words that immediately followed that headline told us 
about one Casper Fernandez and 39 other refugees who were 
making that very short but rough ride of about 90 miles from 
Cuba to Florida. 

You and I are keenly aware of the fact that since time im- 
memorial people have been making long journeys of hope. 
Abraham and his family made it a long time ago when they 
went from Mesopotamia to Palestine. Moses and his 
kinsfolk made one from Egypt to the Promised Land. Miles 
Slandish, John Alden, and Priscilla Mullins made one from 
the Old World to a New World. Some black people made 
one from this country to Liberia. Thousands from the 
Balkans made one from the East to the West. The boat peo- 
ple are making one from southeast Asia to America and 



other lands. And now once again we have men, women, and 
children— but mostly women and children— who are fleeing 
from Ethiopia, going into Somalia. 

And 1 needn't say to you that the world hasn't seen the last 
of the pilgrimages of people who are making what I call this 
morning the long journey of hope — people who for one 
reason or another have had to leave their homelands and go 
into other places, either because of harassment or because of 
physical difficulties. We aren't going to see the last of those 
journeys when all of the Haitians, the Cambodians, the 
Egyptians, or the Ethopians and the Somalians are provided 
for and somewhat settled. Because as we look ahead into the 
generations of people who are yet to live there still are going 
to be individuals, men, women and children from various 
parts of the world, who for one reason or another are going to 
have to leave their homelands and go to other places. 

This morning my thesis, as I speak to you the graduates of 
this class of 1981 at Susquehanna University and your loved 
ones and friends who have gathered, is to press the point that 
one of the tasks we have in this world is to ensure that there 
will be places for those people who, unfortunately, must em- 
bark upon what I call long journeys of hope. 

Last January 20th was a fateful day in the world. Not only 
was it Inauguration Day, but it wasday number 444 and we'll 
not soon forget that day because it was then that 52 hostages 
were released from their captivity that had taken place over 
a year before. Regardless of the other reasons, the dreadful 



act of hostage-taking took place primarily because two coun- 
tries failed to understand one another. Wrong had been done 
and lives had been lost simply because of the misperceplions 
and the distortions that had crept into the minds of people 
within our country and into the minds and lives of people of 
another country. And I make no apology this morning for 
the actions of our country, and 1 don't condone what took 
place among riotous and rebellious Iranians. 1 stand before 
you, rather, to speak of the fact that we deplore and must 
deplore that misperception that had taken place over a 
goodly number of years that caused that impasse that came 
into being and lasted for 444 days. 

Last spring there was a person named Willem A . Bijlefeld. 
a scholar of the study of Islam and Christian-Muslim rela- 
tions of our Hartford Seminary, who spoke to our world mis- 
sions staff and committee members. During the course of his 
comments he said something like this, that it was absolutely 
astounding to note what's happening in the last 14 or 15 
months in the United States of America. And then he went 
on to explain his comment by saying there has been an 
almost unquestioned suggestion that all of us are threatened 
by the Muslim world and that what is happening over there is 
a militant revival which challenges the very existence and 
survival of the West. And what that professor was doing was 
trying to emphasize that we don't understand other peoples 
of the world the way we ought to, we can't comprehend some 
of the things that they treasure as part of their culture or faith 
the way that we could, and as we should. 

A little over a year ago I had the opportunity to attend a 
church convention in Guyana in South America. It was a 
devastating experience at first. The weather was hot. the 
mosquitoes were terrible. The delegates at that convention 
acted far differently than any others that I had seen at any 
convention I've attended. The accommodations were 
primitive and the food was terrible. But, finally, I began to 
understand and it wasn't quite as devastating as it had 
seemed it was going to be, because I realized that there were 
people gathering together like our forebears did in this coun- 
try a century or more ago as they came here to plant the 
church and to establish their roots. Those people down in 
Guyana are part of the developing Third World — human be- 
ings who want a part of the action, so to speak, that is taking 
place in this world in which we live. My difficulties, you see, 
at the beginning of that convention were occasioned by the 
fact that I failed to understand, and I didn't have the percep- 
tions that I ought to. 

At the beginning of this week we became aware once again 
of the importance of shuttle diplomacy. Going back and 
forth together with his aides is a representative of our United

Bench Marks for Success 



THE 1981 COMMENCEMENT ADDRESS 



Thank you, Mr. President. 

This is a happy day for me. U is happy because I have the 
opportunity to come back to Pennsylvania, and the oppor- 
tunity to share it with you. And I know this is a happy mo- 
ment for all of you here today: for the faculty, for the parents 
and the families of the graduating class, and for those of you 
who are in fact graduating. 

You, the families, are happy for many reasons. This in- 
stance represents for you a moment of fulfillment. You've 
done what you can to prepare your sons and daughters for 
this particular time in their lives — to prepare them to take 
their increased role of responsibility in life. For the breadwin- 
ner in the family it is a happy moment because it means that 
his wallet muscle will now have a chance to relax. (Having 
sent three children through college with two more to go, lean 
empathize with that aspect.) 

You on the faculty, you're happy perhaps because your 
pace will slow down a bit during the summer months; but 
more importantly, because in your profession you've chosen 
students as the focus. You've watched this graduating class 
develop, you've watched them mature, and you can take 
great pride in the growth you've inspired. There may bea few 
of the students out there that you're just happy to get rid of 
and that feeling may be a little bit — I hear a clap over there 
and I'll give you equal time — there may bea few students just 
as happy to be gotten rid of. too! 

You, the graduates, have a right to be happy today because 
this event represents for you the attainment of a goal that you 
set some time ago; graduation is a measure of your personal 
success in having attained that goal. 

I flew in this morning from my 30th reunion at the college 
from which I received my undergraduatedegree. While I was 
there 1 was joined by some 200 of the rest of my classmates. 
We had the opportunity to talk about different things, about 
our families, about what we've done during the past 30 years. 
There was sort of a sense of need to determine whether or not 
we were "successes." whether that be successful as in- 
dividuals or successful as a group. 

So 1 thought 1 might talk to you today very briefly about 
your 20th reunion. That's going to be in the year 2001. 
You're going to cross into the 21st century. Most of you will 
be just turning 40 — or will have held at 39 like Jack Benny, or 
me, who just celebrated his 39th birthday again. Now. what 
can you expect in those next 20 years, and what measures can 
you use to evaluate whether you as an individual will have 
been a success when you return for your 20th reunion? 

What I'd like to do is suggest a few bench marks for you 
that you might use in the year 2001, when you come back. 

But first, let's consider what the most dominant single fac- 
tor will be that you must cope with in those intervening 
years — in 20 years. What thoughts come to your mind? Mak- 
ing a living? Raising a family? The economy? Keeping the 
world peaceful? All of these are factors; but I would contend 
that the most dominant factor in the last two decades of this 
century will be change — all-consuming, ever-present, domi- 
nant change. And it's going to affect every facet of our lives: 
how we shop, how we pay bills, how we transport ourselves, 
how we communicate, how we live, how we think. No dimen- 
sion is going to escape change. All points on the spectrum of 
human interest will be modified: technological, political, 
economic, social, psychological, military — in many ways 
that really aren't clear to us today. 

C.P. Snow observed that until this century social change 
was so slow that it could pass unnoticed in one's lifetime. 
We're well beyond that today. Consider the different ways in 
w hich we measure change. For those of you who have studied 
at all of history, you realize that we used to gauge time in 
eras. The Mesozoic Era was the era of the dinosaur — that 
was a hundred and forty-five million years. Much later we 
would identify ages based on some sort of accomplishment, 
or lack thereof. The Middle Ages was a period extending a 
thousand years. Then we got to centuries, and then to 
decades and the Roaring Twenties, and so on down to the 
situation today — when unless you're wearing a quartz watch 
which has instant lime and you're able to tune in to a radio 
which gives you instant news, you're out of touch with w hat's 
going on. I'd like to comfort you, however, because that 
might mean that what you have been taught and learned here 
becomes outdated. While Francis Bacon told us that 
knowledge is power, and the diploma you will receive today 
indicates that you've demonstrated some measurable distinc- 
tion in gaining knowledge, lei me caution you that data of 
knowledge— which is not synonymous with wisdom— is in- 
creating exponentially and therefore the current base of facts

that you possess will become dated very, very rapidly. The 
education you've received here at Susquehanna is most 
meaningful if it has imparted an ability for you to be comfor- 
table with what's new — an ability to accept, to test, to 
classify, and to reason from new bits and pieces of informa- 
tion. I'd agree with one noted psychologist who concluded 
that tomorrow's illiterate will not be the man or woman who 
can't read; it will be the person who hasn't learned how to 
learn. 

The need to stay abreast will be compelling as you move 
toward your 20th reunion. It is going to involve the need to- 
make a concerted effort to continue your education both in 
your specific professional field and in broader disciplines so 
that you are able to interact individually and collectively, in 
the last two decades of this century — particularly if you are 
going to be involved in controlling this change which will 
take place. And none of us can afford to just be passengers on 
this trip; all of us will have to become active, become in- 
volved, as we go about establishing the direction that we go — 
the direction that the nation goes, and the direction that our 
society, our communities, are able to go in the future. 

To do that we have to have some standards, some values, 
that are going to help us see our way through the complex- 
ities of this future change. It's a compass, if you will, that's 
going to point our way through the turbulent times that will 
rock our individual ships as we go through the storms of 
change. 

I'm confident that in your time here at Susquehanna — in 
the midst of your opportunity to think, to learn, to grow, to 
play — consciously or not, you have been involved in firming 
up a set of values, giving you a solid base upon which to 
measure the impact of change. Now I'm not going to ask you 
all to go off to the right here and sign up for the military or 
join the army; but I would like to tell you that the military 
services, the army and all of the institutions of the nation, are 
going to have to go through this same sort of period of 
change; and we have been going through it internally in our 
organization — as well as business organizations, church 
organizations, too — in determining institutional ethics, the 
basic foundations, the value set upon which we can determine 
the directions we must go if we are to ensure that we are able 
to control the change. 

From the Watergate Era there's a quote from Archibald 
Cox, who said that "in our enormously complex society the 
moral precepts which have a dominant share in begetting a 
civilized society require steadfast attention." 

Let me talk briefly about some of the values that I believe 
might serve useful for you as bench marks at your 20th re- 
union to determine whether or not you individually or you 
collectively have in fact been a success. 

We in the army have a responsibility to serve the nation, 
we have to demonstrate our loyalty to our nation and to our 
constitution. No soldier can act outside the constitution, out- 
- side of our laws T outside of the orders we receive from our 
civilian leaders. But loyalty upward is more than simple 



obedience — it also carries with it a responsibility for honesty 
and a willingness to speak up when you are in disagreement. 
It's a commitment to the full spirit of our basic oath of 
allegiance for those of us who wear soldier suits. 

It seems to me that there is a parallel consideration for 
you, and that is that in your lives you will enjoy formal 
relationships with many people, with many organizations. 
You have an obligation, for example, to be a good citizen, 
obey the laws and vote, and to express your honest agreement _ 
or disagreement, with your representative or through the 
court. You also have an obligation to your employers, which 
means that you'll serve them honestly, but not blindly. The 
good employee is one who speaks up when things can be done 
better, and that's the basis upon which America has grown 
great — through a better idea. So the bench mark I would 
draw from this for your consideration 20 years from now is 
the question: Have I contributed to the preservation of the 
nation, its institutions, and its values? 

The second value is one of loyalty; that's loyalty upward 
and downward, and loyalty to one another. Needless to say, 
in the army there is a requirement for loyalty to ensure that 
units can function and operate effectively. But in many ways 
with your family and with your friends there are clear 
parallels in many of the situations you will face, You have 
been nourished and helped in the past as you've had the op- 
portunity to grow; you were given responsibilities, you were 
given shelter if you needed it. Some of you may not have been 
given as much as you thought you needed in facing some of 
life's situations. But now you have the opportunity to interact 
more independently, and this gives rise for the second bench 
mark you will need as you attempt to evaluate yourself 20 
years from now; Have I contributed to the well-being of my 
fellow man? 

The third value has to do with your personal responsibility. 
Clearly, soldiers have a personal responsibility to ensure that 
any action with which they're charged is carried out, and 
they're responsible for it. In your future endeavors much the 
same will be true. Some obligations are clearly yours con- 
tractually, based on the kind of job you take, based on your 
marriage, but let me tell you that obligations for fulfillment 
are not enumerated, nor are they necessarily enumerable. 
You have to look beyond the bare bones of your relationships 
to give them richness, completeness, and meaning; and in this 
regard, don't forget that you have a responsibility to grow as 
an individual. As I mentioned before, you have only learned 
how to learn here at Susquehanna — there are many personal 
dimensions you must continue to develop. The bench mark I 
would suggest from the personal-responsibility value for 
your consideration would be: Have I contributed to my own 
personal growth, seeking to develop my full potential — 
mentally, physically, spiritually, and socially? 

Now I'm not here, as I said earlier, to recruit for the army, 
and some of you may have seen some of the advertising we've

"I nr a long time I had wanted to do something on my

Ihe right situation." 

The right place for Chadwick turned out to be Bethlehem. 
Pa., "here he and his wife Mary are co-owners of Chadwick

Christmas City." A family business with a Susquehanna 
flavor, the station also employs daughters Kathy '11, who 
works lull-time as business manager, and Mary Beth '82. 
who fills in as a disc jockey and office assistant when she is 
home on vacation. 

Raised in Wildwood. N.J.. Hank Chadwick served two 
years in Korea and Japan with the U.S. Army following 
graduation from Susquehanna. After working a few years in 
the advertising department of the R.M. Hollingshead Co. in 
Camden, N.l . he got his first job in the broadcasting 
business as an advertising sales representative with WIP 
radio in Philadelphia. 

In 1959 Hank became vice president and manager of the 
Philadelphia office for the Radio Division of John Blair and 
( o and in 1969 lie was hired as general sales manager for 
WFIL television, now WPVI (Channel 6) in Philadelphia. 
The lalicr two positions involved selling advertising lime to

ically," Hank savs With a tnl.il population ol some 650,000 
ihe Mlenlown- Bethlehem- Easton area is the 59th largest 
commercial market in the country. 

\\ lulc competing in the larger market, the Chadwicks con- 
centrate on their home ens. With a population of some 75.- 
000, home ol the Bethlehem Steel Corp.. Bethlehem is one of 
the most important centers of steel production in the U.S. 
"let. of the 12 commercial radio stations in the l.ehigh 
Valley, only WGPA is licensed solely in Bethlehem. 

In addition to a fertile area for business, the Chadwicks 
have found a community they enjoy being part of. Hank, a 
member of the hoard of several service organisations, is a 
knowledgeable guide and enthusiastic community booster 
who takes obvious delight in giving visitors a tour of 
Bethlehem, He especially enjoys the "mixture of old and 
new" that can be found in the city's historic section where 
much restoration work is in progress. "It's one of the nicest 
towns vou're going to find/' says Hank. 

Upon taking over WGPA, the Chadwicks wasted little 
lime before making significant change's. Under the previous 
ownership, the station had been fully automated with the full 
broadcast day consisting of pre-recorded, computer- 
programmed material. Within a month the Chadwicks had 
made ihe switch to live programming by on-.ur disc jockeys 
They also made technical improvements in the qualm of ihe 
sound and obtained equipment for remote broadcasts. They

I he station is licensed for sunrise-to-sunset broadcasting 

250 watts. WGPA offers its audience a mix of music, 
sports, news, and community affairs programs. Heard at 
1 100 on the AM band, the station advises listeners to "tune 
to the center of your dial." 

The WGPA motto is "We play favorites," referring to the 
"middle-of-the-road" or "adult-contemporary" musical 
programming — a blend of current adult pop music with the 
best-selling adult music of recent years, ranging from Billy 
Joel, Barry Manilow, and Linda Ronsladt to Frank Sinatra, 
Tom Bennett, and Andy Williams. 

Located on the south side of Bethlehem, adjacent to the 
campus or Lehigh University, WGPA is the official Lehigh 
3»i ts nation, doing its own live broadcasts of Engineer foot- 
hall, wrestling, and basketball (whenever the sunset signoff 
allows) Mso aired are regular wrap-ups on other Lehigh 
fcams and sports news from other area colleges, as well as

Calling itself "Bethlehem's Special Events Station." 
WGPA features live, community-related remote broadcasts 
pom such important local events as Bethlehem's Christmas 
1 i lir and the Muhlenberg Medical Center Summer 
festival. 

The station's news and information programming com- 
bines us own extensive coverage of local and area news with 



ABC network's national and international reports and 
Associated Press coverage of the stale and the region. 

In addition, WGPA produces many locally-oriented 
public affairs programs including Community Bulletin 
Board, Bethlehem Area School News, Valley Forum, Con- 
versation with the Mayor, Bethlehem Focus on Women, and 
a series on historic sites. Business-related programs include 
news from the Better Business Bureau and reports on the 
stock market and area job opportunities. There's even Golf 
News Flash, which gives periodic reports on lee-time 
availability at Lehigh Valley public courses on weekend 
mornings. 

On the whole. Hank feels it is an advantage to have so 
many of his family members involved in the business, 
although he confesses that wasn't part of his original motiva- 
tion in buying the station. 

"My wife Mary and daughter Kathy are hard workers in 
key positions. They have a high degree of motivation and 
loyalty that you would not expect from non-family mem- 
bers." Hank says. Of course, there is occasional friction. 
"Although we're a family, the station still has to be run like a 
business — there are things that have to be done. I think my 
wife and daughter feel 1 sometimes lake advantage of them," 
he says. 

While serving as the chief executive. Hank is mainly in- 
volved wilh advertising sales. Mary, a graduate of Pennsyl- 
vania Slate University, handles payroll and accounts payed 



and received. Kathy, in addition to her duties as business 
manager, also handles "traffic" (scheduling air time) and 
music programming and does many of the local news, public 
affairs, and interview shows. 

Mr. and Mrs. Chadwick also have two sons. Tom, a stu- 
dent at Keystone Junior College, sweeps out the station on 
weekends. Mike, a Franklin and Marshall graduate who 
works with an advertising agency, is the only Chadwick who 
has no involvement with WGPA. 

The bulk of the air time is shared by three full-time disc 
jockeys on weekdays with part-timers coming in on week- 
ends. Two sales people assist Hank. There is a total of 1 1 em- 
ployees, counting part-time people. 

Although each family member has some clearly defined 
responsibilities, each is also something of ajack-of-all-trades 
who can function in most of the other jobs. "We all know 
enough to handle problems in any area if there's an emer- 
gency," says Kathy. The only facet of the operation for 
which they are completely dependent on others is the engi- 
neering. 

Interestingly, neither Hank nor Kathy majored in com- 
munications at Susquehanna, although Mary Beth is doing 
so. Hank, who attended the University before the Com- 
munications Department existed, earned the B.S. degree in 
business administration. Kathy received her B.A. in political 
science. 

While there may not be much direct connection between 
their major field of study and their current endeavors, Hank 
and Kathy still feel their Susquehanna experience was 
worthwhile. Both are active in the Alumni Association, and 
Hank put his professional expertise to work for the Univer- 
sity by serving on a committee which evaluated the opera- 
lions of the college radio station WQSU. 

"I received a good, broad general education," says Hank. 
This is especially helpful now that he's running his own 
business in which a variety of skills are necessary. He notes 
that his work is "horizontal" and requires him to deal with 
people in many different fields. 

While a liberal arts student, Kathy took courses in 
management, advertising, and marketing which provided a 
good background for understanding the operation of a 
business and the thinking of the business people with whom 
the radio station deals. 

And her political science studies are not forgotten since she 
interviews many politicians and other public figures for her 
radio news shows. During the last presidential campaign, 
Kathy talked with'George Bush. Rosalyn Carter, and Nancy 
Reagan. Before joining WGPA. she worked in Robert 
Bulera's unsuccessful primary campaign for the Pennsyl- 
vania Republican gubernatorial nomination. 

Hank finds running his own radio station to be both in- 
teresting and challenging. "It's a rapidly changing field in 
terms of technology and it reflects social changes on a daily 
basis in the news and music aspects," he says. It's a highly 
competitive situation, but there is reward in seeing things ac- 
complished." Problems in the economy make running a 
small business difficult, but Hank has no regrets. "It's been a 
struggle for us, but we're working on it."

Long Journeys of Hope 



» nnunued from page 6 

State! between Damascus and Jerusalem. It's said thai the 
clock is running out; I haven't heard the news today so I 
don't know what's laken place during the course of the last 
24 hours But there is a tinder box over in that part of the 
world and one of the reasons that inferno is about to explode 
is because of a lack of understanding— an unwillingness to 
perceive other people the way they arc. to recognize that 
there can be a divergence of opinions and convictions and. 
yet, people can and should be living side by side. 

The almighty God created this world and all peoples of it. 
And one of the things that ought to have taken place during 
the course of the years here at Susquehanna University is to 
help those of you who are the graduates and all who are part 
of this family to understand that we are called upon to deepen 
and broaden our understanding of other people — to come to 
an awareness of the fact that with that understanding we can 
accept them, and we can be those who would be cooperative 
in their pursuits and in their endeavors. And I submit to you 
this morning that one of the attitudes that we must have and 
which we must hone, if you please, and preserve if there are 
going to he refuges for people who have gone the long jour- 
ney of hope, is that which I refer to as understanding. 

Tiffany and Company in New York City is one jewelry 
store of some reknown. Sometime ago I looked in The New 
York Times and read one of its ads and it wasn't an ad that 
day that was simply producing or repeating the benefits of 
one of the wares or bits of merchandise from that particular 
place, but rather it was a statement about education. And the 
ad said this: "The basic purpose of education is to achieve 
maturity, not just physical maturity but intellectual 
maturity, emotional maturity and above all, moral and 
spiritual maturity. Without maturity there can be no 
wisdom, no insight, no judgment, no compassion. Nor can 
there be any real understanding of oneself, or of other human 
beings, or of the great questions of our time." 

1 suppose we have to conclude that too few people ever 
reach that kind of maturity and perhaps none ever do. 
Maturity results, you see, in thinking people. And so the next 
thing I emphasize this morning is the fact that you have been 
prepared, you the graduates of this institution, to be thinking 
people, or idea people. 

Back in 1215 on the plains of Runnymede in England the 
Magna Carta was drafted. That became a document upon 
which the laws of justice throughout the world have been 
based. The English barons who wrote that statement were 
idea or thinking people. They had nothing to go on before 
that time. 

In 1517 Martin Luther marched himself up to the castle 
church door in Wittenberg, Germany. And there you recall 
that he posted what has come to be known as the 95 theses, in 
which he voiced his opposition to some of the prevailing prac- 
tices of that time of the established Roman Catholic Church. 
No one previous to that had dared to do what he did. He did 



it because of convictions within his heart and also because of 
thinking, because of the maturity that had come to him. the 
wrestling that had taken place, and the ideas and the 
thoughts that he had. 

There was Abraham Lincoln a little over a century ago in 
this country. He dared to write the Emancipation Proclama- 
tion. It must have seemed immediately after he wrote that, 
that there was chaos erupting all over in our country. But 
there isn't a single person in this room this morning or in our 
country, I trust, who doesn't recognize the validity and the 
significance of that document to the history of this nation 
and even to the world. It came about because of his thinking 
and because of his ideas. 

And we can't overlook Martin Luther King who a couple 
of decades ago began that non-violent movement, born out of 
the compassion that he had within his heart and his soul, 
born out of convictions which he had, and ideas and thoughts 
as he surveyed what was taking place in our cherished land, 
recognizing some of the difficulties being confronted by peo- 
ple whom we declared by our lips to be equal in every respect. 
It came about because of his ideas and because of his 
thoughts. 

And I say to you this morning, the graduates of this class, 
that the last people who are great thinkers haven't been born. 
We still need people who are like Plato and Paul, Aristotle 
and Luther, Augustine and Martin Luther King. We need 
people who will know God's word and will recognize that 
that word of God is ever calling upon you and me to perceive 
the truth of it and to make application and implication in the 
lives that we are living. Because, you see, it's people who 
make our world, people endowed with gifts from their 
Creator, and people who let those wrongdoings within their 
lives and their sinfulness be confessed, and then by the 
strength of their God put into being ideas that are based upon 
what he has given to them through his creation. The task that 
we have then is to provide that there shall ever be refuges and 
places of abode for people who are upon a long journey of 
hope, by our ideas and our thoughts based upon those eternal 
truths of our God. 

I am sure that the name of Dietrich Bonhoeffer is known 
to a goodly number of people who are gathered here. He was 
an eminent theologian in Germany at the time of World War 
1 1, an individual who dared to stand up to Adolf Hitler and 
became his thorn in the flesh. Bonhoeffer believed Hitler's 
policies were wrong and he said so; he died a martyr's death. 
He died a person of faith, convinced oftherightness and the 
truth of what he was saying, that what was taking place in 
that country was wrong and sinful. It was in April of 1945 
that he was led to his execution, and he died with an affirma- 
tion of the faith that he had in his God upon his lips and being 
shown by his face and even his life. I say to you that if there is 
going to be a place for people who are upon that long journey 
of hope to find refuge, there must be people of faith. 



Bench Marks for Success 



been doing recently. One of the songs we have is "Be all that 
you can be" — now you music majors know why I'm not a 
music major. But being all that you van he is good advice 
whether you're in or >>ui ol uniform 

I he final element .if the ethic that I would like to draw 
from, I" lav out as a iK-nch mark lor >ou. is a component of 
Nellies service, rhat's an adherence to service that gives 
significance to the routine things we do, .ill the way through 
the responsibttit) that soldiers have to be willing to risk death 
■I injur) Selflessness and commitment areh.illm.nks Now. 
fortunately, it's nol necessar) that we draw the same 
parallels between soldiers and those of you who are going 
into other professions as we extend this concept into your 
lives. But there will be ample opportunity for you to serve — 
to serve in your communities, to serve in your churches, to 
serve in uiur society; and the next two decades will require 
service on the part of each and every citizen, and will require 
a selflessness to be willing to accompany that service that can 
be seen and percieved by everyone. So I would add as the last 
bench mark for your checklist: Have I contributed to further- 
ing God's work here on earth through my own selfless ser- 
vice? 

So those are the thoughts 1 present to you — a success- 
oriented checklist of considerations by which you and your 
classmates can judge the adequacy, the completeness of your 



lives as you seek to measure them as you enter the 21st cen- 
tury: Have I contributed to the preservation of the nation, its 
institutions, and its values'. 1 Have I contributed to the well- 
being o{ my fellow man? Have I contributed to my own per- 
sonal growth, seeking to develop my full potential — 
physically, menially, spiritually, and socially? Have 1 con- 
tributed to furthering God's work here on earth? 

Now, whether vou judge yourselves immense successes 
against this list may nol be as important as the fact that you 
will have tried If \ou consider the virtues of mighty Rome 
propelled to its zenith by adherence lo the virtues of family, 
country, dignity, and responsibility, those values waned when 
Romans displayed a reluctance to personally defend them. 
And then Rome waned. 

But today is a happy day — for all of us, your family, your 
faculty, and you the class of 1981. My prayer is that at your 
20lh reunion in the year 2001 you can again enjoy a happy 
day, and you can look back and see a nation with its 
freedoms and values not only intact, but enhanced. And if 
you individually and collectively have contributed to thai 
slate of well-being through your service in managing change, 
then you'll be able to join your classmates here at your 20th 
reunion and proclaim with them: We have succeeded. I wish 
each of you well in that. 

Good luck to each of you, and God bless you. 



The Professor Bijlefeld to whom I made reference a few 
moments ago in that same meeting said. "Many Americans 
are having trouble understanding the Muslim revival because 
the> can't comprehend that there are people who believe 
their religion should influence everything they do." Ifthereis 
truth in thai statement, it's an indictment upon this religious 
nation. 1 once had a person come to me and say. "Pastor, I 
don't let mv religion interfere with my business." There 
aren't many people who will affirm that statement with their 
lips, but I dare say that there are too many people in our 
world and our country w-ho let the essence of that little state- 
ment prevail wilhin their lives. 

Faith must dictate the way that we live. The convictions 
which we cherish within our hearts and in our minds, of our 
relationship with our God. must dictate the way that we 
would affirm even each and every day. This world needs peo- 
ple of faith for faith gives hope. If we take hope away, 
fatalism is going to reign. If we eliminate hope, hopelessness 
is going to conquer. Hope is the leaven of life. Hope is a con- 
solation, even the victory, over failure. Hope is the promise 
of endurance. Hope is that in which we come, as we as Chris- 
tians say, in Jesus Christ. And so the world will always need 
hope. 

Those of you of the graduating class have heard of it, you 
don'l recall it first hand, but there were some dark days dur- 
ing the first part of World War II. Dunkirk had taken place, 
the Guadalcanal march had occurred. One thing after 
another seemed to be going contrary to the expectations of 
the military leaders of this country and it was at that very 
time when we were in the depths of despair, it seemed, that 
the famed preacher of Riverside Church in New York City 
preached a sermon entitled "There's no greater time to be 
alive." Harry Emerson Fosdick stressed in that sermon that 
the darkest of times can bring out the strongest glimmers of 
faith. 

We don't know what's going to be ahead for those of you 
of this graduating class as you walk into the years, the 
decades that are ahead. There are going to be good days, but 
there are going to be bad days. The emphasis that I want to 
make at this particular time is, as you walk into those days 
and into those years, take with you faith — faith in that one 
who's your God and your Lord, looking to him for the hope 
that he gives, remembering that if you have faith you can 
help to preserve even places of refuge for other people who 
find themselves upon long pilgrimagesof hope. Susquehanna 
University never promised to those of you who are 
graduating that you would have all the answers to life. 
However, it's attempted to assist you to come to maturity, to 
a maturity through which life can be lived in a meaningful 
way. And your experience, I submit to you, at this institution 
has helped you to realize the need for understanding, to per- 
ceive the value of thinking, and to treasure the strength of 
your faith. And by being understanding people, by living as 
thinking people, by being faith people, like Abraham of 
old — like the people on the road to Damacus who were walk- 
ing with the Lord Christ and didn't realize it — you can come 
to a life that can be put together, that will enable you as you 
make your pilgrimage of hope, to have confidence and to at- 
tain victory. And at the same time, to be ensuring that there 
will ever be in this world those places of refuge and abode to 
which other people, deprived in one way or another, are em- 
barking upon some long journeys of hope. 

So my thought and my message to you is, graduates, 
you're upon that long, same journey. Now make it possible 
that other people in this world, too. who for one reason or 
another must make a journey in pain, out of anxiety, perhaps 
in anguish, will too see themselves as going on a long journey 
of hope. Amen.
